Longmont, USA, October 18, 2007: DigitalGlobe, the provider of high-resolution imagery and geospatial information products, announced that Oracle and DigitalGlobe will offer satellite imagery to Oracle Database 11g customers. Sample imagery of the city of San Francisco is now available and is downloadable through the Oracle Technology Network (OTN) here.

Via Oracle Spatial, DigitalGlobe will provide real-time access to its extensive image library for applications such as logistics, supply chain, mobile field services, business intelligence and asset management. With the release of Oracle Database 11g, DigitalGlobe allows advanced access to sample imagery data via OTN enabling Oracle customers to test-drive imagery in their business applications before making a purchase decision.

“DigitalGlobe maintains a strong commitment to providing a new level of decision support to our enterprise customers across all industries,” said Marc Tremblay, vice president and general manager of DigitalGlobe’s commercial business unit. “Our work with the Oracle Spatial team will provide a host of new capabilities to our DigitalGlobe and Oracle customers in the public sector and commercial markets. With integrated geospatial data from DigitalGlobe, Oracle customers now have a standardized way to easily include imagery in their decision support systems. This allows ‘image-enabled’ Oracle applications users to make faster and better-informed decisions from the applications that run their business.”
