Seeing a Better World™ in Africa

Thursday, August 29th, 2013

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.


DigitalGlobe – a Partner’s Partner

Monday, August 19th, 2013

Exciting times are ahead for DigitalGlobe and our partners.  In the Europe, Middle East, Africa and Russia (EMEA/R) region where I work on the Business Development team, we are always on the lookout for new and exciting companies in the GIS space who can leverage our data and add value to our products and services. In order to practice what we preach and live our Purpose, Vision & Values – PVV – we have tried our best to leverage the information and insight to be gained from the millions of square kilometres our constellation of satellites collects each and every day. And our recent combination with GeoEye has helped significantly increase our fantastic collection capacity.

Often, it is our customers and partners who recognize the value of our data and help us to extract as much significance as possible out of each and every pixel collected.  As a result of these engagements, we have begun to look closer to those in our GIS community who can assist us in realizing our Vision – by 2020: to be the indispensable source of information about our changing planet.
