Before disasters strike, governments and first responders rely on our imagery to evaluate infrastructure and ground conditions and plan how to react to a variety of emergencies that threaten life and property. Our detailed, high-resolution imagery and powerful online and offline delivery tools accurately present developed and undeveloped landscape, which allows careful planning for emergency response activities.
Whether you are mapping a potential fire, flood, hurricane, or earthquake path, you can use our imagery to prepare residents with evacuation routes and plan navigation for emergency responders. DigitalGlobe imagery is ideally suited to monitor cities, coastlines, borders, roads, utilities, and the possible outcome where disaster may occur. Combined with your existing transportation networks, hospital locations, and census data, our imagery reveals the detailed map needed for city managers and emergency personnel to understand the overall environment involved during a broad impact event. In addition, our archived imagery captured during or after other disasters in history help you build predictive models, establish early warning systems, and assess resource needs.
Knowing the probable impact, escape routes and response needed to protect life, homes and communities during a catastrophic event aids proper planning so that governments, insurance companies, responders, and rebuilders can organize and mobilize efficiently should it actually happen. DigitalGlobe products provide the accurate, high resolution and historical views needed to use and share the data and to coordinate emergency efforts.
