About Us

DigitalGlobe's satellite constellation is the best in the world

DigitalGlobe owns and operates the most agile and sophisticated constellation of high-resolution commercial earth imaging satellites. WorldView-1, GeoEye-1, WorldView-2, and WorldView-3 together are capable of collecting over one billion square kilometers of quality imagery per year and offering intraday revisits around the globe.

Technology to meet your needs

Highest commercial resolution

Highest commercial resolution

DigitalGlobe is the first company to deliver 30 cm resolution imagery, delivering clearer, richer images that empower better decision making through improved situational awareness.

Largest daily capacity

Largest daily collection capacity

Combined, our satellites have a daily image capacity of over three million square kilometers, giving you access to all parts of the globe and feeding into the industry's largest imagery archive.

Haze penetration

Unsurpassed haze penetration

See through clouds and smoke and detect objects on the other side of them, rendering these obstructions invisible.

Highest spectral diversity

Highest spectral diversity

Our multi and super-spectral capabilities allow you to easily distinguish between materials on the earth's surface, opening up exploration and feature identification opportunities.

Frequent revisits

Most-frequent revisit rates

Our satellites have a high revisit rate, so you can detect changes on the ground over short periods of time.

Geo location accuracy

Best geolocation accuracy

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.

  • The largest constellation in the industry

    Worldview 3


    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.

    Worldview 2


    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.

    Worldview 1


    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.

    Geoeye 1


    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.
