|DigitalGlobe Launches Crisis Event Service|
The new online service is designed to provide a comprehensive picture
for global crisis including at least three high-resolution imagery
versions of each affected area: the most current pre-event imagery from
DigitalGlobe’s extensive ImageLibrary archive, imagery during or just
after the event, and a follow-up image within 30 days following the
event. Crisis Service images will be available online within one to
three days of any given event through DigitalGlobe’s online platform.
DigitalGlobe’s Crisis Event Service supports emergency preparedness risk and planning analysis for local, civil and federal governments, defense and homeland security, insurance and reinsurance agencies, and multinational and humanitarian agencies. Satellite imagery is a useful decision support tool when on-ground accessibility is difficult or dangerous.
Imagery for the Crisis Event Service is collected from DigitalGlobe’s
QuickBird and WorldView-1 satellites. Imagery from DigitalGlobe’s 8-band
multi-spectral satellite, WorldView-2, will be added to the service upon
successful launch and product availability. The
With our collection sources, comprehensive ImageLibrary (containing more than 660 million square kilometers of earth imagery and imagery products) we offer a range of on- and off-line products and services designed to enable customers to easily access and integrate our imagery into their business operations and applications.
