US: DigitalGlobe unveiled its My DigitalGlobe cloud services platform at GEOINT 2012, the nation”s largest intelligence event. DigitalGlobe Cloud Services unlocks the power of the world”s largest online library of high-resolution imagery by giving customers access to the most current imagery and geospatial information from desktops, portals, intranets and mobile devices around the world.
The new My DigitalGlobe portal creates seamless, on-demand access to more than 200 million square kilometers of imagery — a number that grows every day. This includes content from DigitalGlobe services such as Global Basemap, First Look, Enhanced GEOINT Delivery (EGD) and some custom customer content.
In short, the simple and intuitive My DigitalGlobe user-interface further enhances the experience for government and commercial customers through a greater ability to access and manage the information they need when and where they need it most.
“By giving our customers quick and simple access to geospatial imagery and information — anytime and anywhere — they can make smarter decisions faster,” said Scott Hicar, senior vice president, DigitalGlobe. “My DigitalGlobe is the next evolution of imagery dissemination that provides end-users with more immediate and reliable access to critical information through the cloud,” he added.
Through the My DigitalGlobe interface, customers can access their Global Basemap and FirstLook products and EGD content to quickly search for imagery, plan and manage downloads, and export and save in multiple formats.
Its easy-to-use online browser also allows access to multi-temporal imagery and metadata, and it provides an exclusive add-as-you-go library for organizing, downloading and extracting data directly into workflows.
Whether through high quality ortho imagery from Global Basemap Cities, or imagery to assess and respond to natural disasters with FirstLook, the new platform provides those who use My DigitalGlobe with simplified access, quick analysis and improved decision making capabilities whenever and wherever they need it.
“The My DigitalGlobe UI is simple and clean, and the ability to process images online easily is great,” said Shin Nagamine of Hitachi Solution, LTD. “For example, I really like that I can make a collage or add an image to the library with choice in interpolation. The ability to add the satellite image that we need to the library is very useful, and because we can share the images with people remotely, it reduces storage and hardware costs,” he added.
