It’s Time to Try Tasking With DigitalGlobe Again!!

As many of you know, we here at Apollo Mapping can be brutal honest – perhaps to a fault… So when we say that it is time to try tasking (or a new collection of satellite imagery) with DigitalGlobe again, we mean business!! If we were having this ‘conversation’ 4 years ago, it would be a very different outcome – but these days, DigitalGlobe is, simply put, kicking butt and taking names when it comes to new collections.

Here are a few examples that come to mind:

  • 100 square kilometer (sq km) 50-centimeter (cm) standard tasking of WorldView-2/3 and GeoEye-1 in a hotly contested region of Iraq – collected in just 13 days!
  • 925 sq km 30-cm multispectral and 7.5-meter (m) short-wave infrared standard tasking of WorldView-3 in the Andes – collected in under two weeks then recollected in under one week!
  • 100 sq km 50-cm priority tasking of WorldView-1/2/3 and GeoEye-1 in a very cloudy part of eastern China – collected repeatedly in under two weeks each time!

So if you need newly collected high-resolution satellite imagery for your next project, please be sure to consider tasking with DigitalGlobe again!! Send us an email at if you would like more information on tasking GeoEye-1 and the WorldView-1/2/3/4 constellation.

P.S. This article does not take away from the tasking efforts of our other vendors, for example Airbus’ Pléiades 1 and SPOT 6/7 which have always, and continue to, task in lighting fast times as well!
