DigitalGlobe Announces Advanced Ortho Product Series

Offering provides customers with unmatched accuracy, quality, aesthetics and speed of delivery

Longmont, Colo. and San Diego, Calif., July 12, 2010 –DigitalGlobe, a leading global content provider of high-resolution earth imagery solutions, today announced the availability of its new Advanced Ortho Series of products. Consisting of the Ortho Vision and Ortho Vision Premium lines, which are based on customer aesthetics requirements, DigitalGlobe’s ability to provide the best quality orthos, faster and easier than ever before is now better suited to satisfy the diversified product needs of a growing number of imagery users.

The Ortho Vision line is designed for professional users in need of quality images for analysis and identification. Ortho Vision Premium imagery is tailored for users in need of the highest possible aesthetics. Images classified as Ortho Vision Premium will feature less than 3% cloud cover, geometric breaks less than one meter and tonally balanced imagery in addition to no haze, pollution or fog.

Both the Vision and Vision Premium products are further segmented by levels of accuracy – Display (25.4 m CE90), Mapping (10.2 m CE90) and Precision (4.2 m CE90) – allowing users to select the accuracy level required for their applications. The Precision products offer industry-leading planimetric accuracy for precise measurements, uniformity and consistency with other datasets and the ability to derive the most accurate information.

"DigitalGlobe has long been a leader in providing orthorectified imagery. With the rollout of this new Advanced Ortho Series, we are able to deliver imagery with industry-leading quality and consistency as well as unmatched resolution and accuracy," said John Oechsle, DigitalGlobe’s executive vice president of strategy and product. "With the largest existing library and most active satellite constellation, DigitalGlobe is uniquely positioned to provide these products to the industries that have the most to gain from earth imagery, information and insight."

Higher throughput and faster turnaround time allow for mass deliveries of orthorectified imagery required for large projects or areas of interest. With the capability to process one million square kilometers of imagery per day – an area equivalent to the size of Egypt – Vision products can be processed and delivered in as little as 2 days.  And only DigitalGlobe has over one billion square kilometers of high-resolution imagery already collected and existing in the DigitalGlobe ImageLibrary ready for processing. Additionally, many areas are available off the shelf ready for immediate delivery.

"With the rapid increase in customer demand for products that can be utilized and integrated without the resources required to manipulate the imagery, it made sense to structure our offerings in a more scalable set of formats designed to meet the needs of a wide range of imagery users," said Oechsle.
