NBC’s use of DigitalGlobe’s collection of current and historical sub-meter earth imagery signifies the increasing demand for high-resolution satellite and aerial imagery, and the expansion of this technology into industries beyond location-based services, such as television entertainment, broadcast media, online Web portals, and social networking.
“I am pleased that our satellite imagery is playing a role in helping NBC raise awareness about environmental issues and how it affects people on every corner of the earth,” said Jill Smith, chief executive officer of DigitalGlobe. “This technology will provide “TODAY” show viewers with a unique experience with these remote locations through the power of satellite imagery.”
