DigitalGlobe Basemap – A Worldwide Imagery Solution – Focus on Russia & +Vivid

Do you have the need for regularly updated images of locations around the world?

Perhaps you need imagery to integrate with an OEM solution you are developing?

Or maybe your organization uses large amounts of high-resolution imagery each year, and you are seeking a low-cost option for this data?

If you answered yes to any or all of these questions, then the solution you are looking for is DigitalGlobe Basemap (DGB).

With DigitalGlobe Basemap, you have access to millions of square kilometers of imagery with low cloud-cover and off-nadir angles. This data is accessible in streaming web-mapping services as well as through an online viewer. And perhaps the most important feature of DGB is the regular updates you can receive as out-dated imagery is often of little or no use to our valued clients.

June 2015 DigitalGlobe Basemap Product Update

While we refer often refer to DGB as one product for the sake of ease, it is actually a suite of products specialized for various basemap applications. One of these is called Basemap +Vivid (or +Vivid for short), which features high-resolution and low cloud cover full-country orthomosaics. To date, there are 95 countries available covering more than 50 million square kilometers! This product can be purchased as an online subscription service or as an offline GeoTIFF. During Q3 2015, the continent of Europe will be added to the +Vivid database, and then the United States will be added in Q4 2015.
