DigitalGlobe has rolled out 30-centimeter satellite imagery products for government and industrial customers.
The high-resolution aerial photos are captured through DigitalGlobe’s WorldView-3 satellite and intended to help civil government, defense, intelligence, energy, mining and global development organizations, DigitalGlobe said Wednesday.
“Today marks a significant milestone for our customers, who will now benefit from a level of image quality that has never before been available from commercial satellite providers,“ said Hyune Hand, senior vice president for product management and marketing at DigitalGlobe.
Hand added the company also offers satellite-derived images to help save lives and resources through the firm’s Seeing a Better World program.
WorldView-3 employs a shortwave infrared sensor technology to see through haze and smoke, recognize minerals and manmade materials and examine crops and vegetation, according to DigitalGlobe.
The company has also launched a beta version of 7.5-meter SWIR imagery and is working with other companies and customers to explore new applications for that kind of image resolution.
