Digitalglobe Surpasses 1bn Sq KM Of Earth Imagery

DigitalGlobe (NYSE: DGI), a leading global provider of commercial high-resolution world-imagery products and services for defense and intelligence, civil government, and commercial customers, today announced that its industry-leading content library now contains more than one billion square kilometers of earth imagery, 33 percent of which is less than one year old.

"The unrivaled quality and quantity contained in DigitalGlobe's ImageLibrary is what allows us to deliver the imagery our customers need when they need it," said Jill Smith, CEO of DigitalGlobe.

"The power of our industry-leading constellation enables us to persistently break new ground for the industry and we strive to offer our customers the largest collection of accurate, current satellite imagery available."

DigitalGlobe's WorldView-1, QuickBird and recently launched WorldView-2 satellites combine to form the industry's largest satellite constellation.

These three satellites, together with DigitalGlobe's aerial network, enable the company to offer the highest collection capacity of high-resolution earth imagery to customers around the world, adding roughly 1.5 million square kilometers of imagery every day or three times the Earth's landmass annually.

The result is DigitalGlobe's highly complete ImageLibrary, containing imagery used to inform critical decisions across a range of industries.
