Telogis customers gain access to satellite imagery, providing real world perspective to asset management
Newport Beach, Calf. – February 3, 2009 – DigitalGlobe, a leading global provider of high-resolution world imagery content solutions, today announced that it has signed an agreement with Telogis, the leading global platform for Location-Based Services (LBS). Under the agreement, Telogis developers will have access to DigitalGlobe’s high resolution imagery – a fundamental tool for Mobile Resource Management (MRM) across Telogis’ 350,000 mobile devices in 40 countries worldwide.
High-resolution imagery is fundamental to the user experience when managing resources. DigitalGlobe’s ImageBuilder imagery service provides developer access to the most current and comprehensive online library of sub-meter earth imagery, with new images being collected and uploaded every day. With high-resolution imagery, Telogis’ customers will be able to identify assets in relationship to landmarks. The new capability provides greater intelligence and management capability across the enterprise.
“The ability to easily overlay satellite imagery in our application gives our customers a new level of visibility,” said Dave Cozzens, CEO of Telogis. “The Digital Globe high-resolution capability provides a powerful tool, working together with the map views and other tools, to enable our enterprise clients to more efficiently manage their resources and vehicles.”
DigitalGlobe has been the pioneer in making earth imagery available worldwide for web portals and mobile mapping applications. Its high-resolution satellite constellation (QuickBird, WorldView-1 and WorldView-2 launching in Q3/2009) and aerial program collect nearly 1 million square kilometers of earth imagery each day, with much of this imagery available via its online ImageBuilder service.
“Satellite imagery adds a new dimension to the many strong applications Telogis provides,” said Michael McCarthy, senior director of business development and consumer segments at DigitalGlobe. “DigitalGlobe is looking forward to this alliance with Telogis and how ImageBuilder can enable easier asset management for users worldwide.”
