Digitize parcels for accurate land use or agricultural records

See how

Land development is happening faster than ever.

Because of this rapidly changing landscape it can be difficult for governments to keep their land use records current.

Combine DigitalGlobe satellite imagery with current parcel information to get the most up-to-date and accurate imagery of your city's land with boundaries laid on top. This is perfect for better understanding land applications like infrastructure planning and taxation.

Drag the slider to see how you can gain insight through digitized parcels.


Optimize customer experience by optimizing the integrity of your maps

See how

Users expect the most up-to-date imagery in the apps they use in the social/mobile/location space.

It can be difficult to keep your maps up-to-date when community development moves at such a rapid pace.

High-resolution satellite imagery is a next-generation maintenance tool that can identify ground-truth changes such as buildings, roads, residential, and commercial development so you can act on those changes in an efficient, targeted, and cost effective manner.

Drag the slider to see how satellite imagery can help to pick up on new developments.


Find and evaluate mineral deposits at scale

See how

Efficient exploration is critical for mining companies.

Traditional methods of geological exploration are both time-consuming and expensive.

Since 2001, ASTER's coarse SWIR bands have proven their utility in mineral exploration. Now, with high-resolution SWIR imagery from DigitalGlobe, mining companies can far more clearly understand the presence and patterns of pathfinding minerals before investing in field deployments.
