Esri, DigitalGlobe partner to expand World Imagery Map

June 27, 2016  - By 1 Comments

DigitalGlobe Inc., Earth imagery and information company, today announced an agreement to make more current satellite imagery of the entire world available to users of Esri’s ArcGIS product family.

The new long-term partnership with Esri will enhance the World Imagery Map and give ArcGIS Online and ArcGIS Data Appliance users access to current and complete high-resolution satellite imagery mosaics. The World Imagery Map is foundational to Esri’s vision of connecting people with maps, data and apps through geographic information systems (GIS).

The multi-year subscription features DigitalGlobe’s Basemap +Vivid and Basemap +Metro products, which will be refreshed with the latest content throughout the contract term. New imagery will start flowing into the World Imagery Map later this year.

In addition, the two companies will work together over the coming months to explore new ways to connect Esri’s ArcGIS Online and marketplace to DigitalGlobe’s Geospatial Big Data platform, GBDX, allowing users to perform advanced analytics at scale against a 15-year time-lapse image library to solve complex problems.

“Esri’s global user base can now create even more powerful and effective products that enable decisions to be made with confidence and improve our collective understanding of the world,” said Jeffrey R. Tarr, DigitalGlobe president and chief executive officer.

“We have enjoyed collaborating with DigitalGlobe and look forward to a long-term partnership,” said Jack Dangermond, Esri president and founder. “Their superior quality imagery will benefit Esri and our users.”
