At DigitalGlobe, we believe the answers to some of the world's most pressing problems are within reach if we elevate our perspective and see things more objectively, more holistically—from space.
DigitalGlobe is the first company to deliver 30cm resolution imagery, delivering clearer, richer images that empower informed decision-making.
Our satellite constellation has a daily image capacity of more than three million square kilometers, ensuring currency as well as continuously enriching the world’s largest image library.
Our multi and super-spectral capabilities allow you to see through clouds and smoke, as well as easily distinguish between materials on the Earth's surface.
Our advanced accuracy technology ensures content from DigitalGlobe is as closely aligned as possible to a known lat/long coordinate on the surface of the Earth.
WorldView-3® is the first multi-payload, super-spectral, high-resolution commercial satellite. Operating at an expected altitude of 617 kilometers, WorldView-3 provides 31 cm panchromatic resolution, 1.24 m multispectral resolution, and 3.7 m short-wave infrared resolution. WorldView-3 has an average revisit time of less than one day and is capable of collecting up to 680,000 square kilometers per day, further enhancing the DigitalGlobe collection capacity for more rapid and reliable collection. Launched in 2014, the WorldView-3 system allows DigitalGlobe to further expand its imagery product offerings.Download the datasheet
WorldView-2®, launched October 2009, is the first high-resolution 8-band multispectral commercial satellite. Operating at an altitude of 770 kilometers, WorldView-2 provides 46 cm panchromatic resolution and 1.85 meter multispectral resolution. WorldView-2 has an average revisit time of 1.1 days and is capable of collecting up to 1 million square kilometers of 8-band imagery per day, greatly enhancing the DigitalGlobe multispectral collection capacity for more rapid and reliable collection. The WorldView-2 system, offering incredible accuracy, agility, capacity and spectral diversity, allows DigitalGlobe to substantially expand its imagery product offerings to both commercial and government customers.Download the datasheet
WorldView-1®, launched September 2007, is the first of our next-generation satellites—the most agile satellites ever flown commercially. The high-capacity, panchromatic imaging system features half-meter resolution imagery. Operating at an altitude of 496 kilometers, WorldView-1 has an average revisit time of 1.7 days and is capable of collecting over 1.5 million square kilometers per day of half-meter imagery. The satellite is also equipped with state-of-the-art geolocation accuracy capabilities and exhibits stunning agility with rapid targeting and efficient in-track stereo collection.Download the datasheet
GeoEye-1® set the standard for sub-half meter high-resolution commercial satellite imagery and offers unprecedented spatial resolution. It creates this accuracy by simultaneously acquiring 0.41-meter panchromatic and 1.65-meter multispectral imagery. The satellite can collect up to 700,000 square kilometers of panchromatic imagery per day (and up to 350,000 square kilometers of pan-sharpened multispectral imagery). And because of GeoEye-1’s detail and geospatial accuracy, it can be used to collect imagery in every commercial and government market sector.Download the datasheet
