Africa is a part of the world with unique opportunities and challenges; many regions are experiencing rapid economic growth, while others are limited by geopolitical instability. With this in mind, DigitalGlobe recently launched an Africa Microsite to showcase how our work across the continent is helping governments, companies and NGOs to see a better world in Africa.
Using our insight capabilities, geospatial analysis, geographic information surveys and Africa global basemap, our goal is to help decision-makers better understand change across the continent. We plan to accomplish this using three primary capabilities:
High resolution earth imagery: DigitalGlobe owns and operates the world’s largest high resolution satellite constellation. We collect 60 percent of the world’s land mass in imagery every 30 days. Our growing imagery archive recently surpassed 4 billion square kilometers,and we have collected more than 30 million square kilometers across the continent of Africa, primarily within the last 12 months.
