WESTMINSTER, Colo. – DigitalGlobe, Inc. (NYSE: DGI), the global leader in Earth imagery and information about our changing planet, today announced a partnership with Esri and Harris Corporation (NYSE: HRS), which will enable Esri users to access DigitalGlobe’s 17-year, time-lapse library of high-resolution satellite imagery and the analytical and deep learning tools needed to unlock actionable insights from that imagery at scale.
The new AllAccess+Analytics service integrates DigitalGlobe’s Geospatial Big Data platform, GBDX, with Esri’s ArcGIS Enterprise 10.5 platform and Harris’ ENVI remote sensing analytics portfolio. This offering allows subscribers to select DigitalGlobe imagery for hosting in the GBDX platform and to leverage GBDX machine learning algorithms, including capabilities developed by DigitalGlobe’s ever-growing ecosystem of GBDX developers, Esri Raster Analytics, and ENVI analytics in an integrated environment. Users will be able to access and define the analytics to be performed within their federated enterprise GIS to gain new insights from Earth observation data.
“The AllAccess+Analytics offering will allow subscribers to tap into more than 100 petabytes of the world’s highest-quality commercial satellite imagery and the industry’s most advanced analytic and machine learning tools,” said John-Isaac Clark, head of Platform Product Development at DigitalGlobe. “By integrating directly with the Esri environment used by tens of thousands GIS professionals every day, we are making it easier to access our industry-leading image library and answer complex questions at global scale with world-class analytical capabilities.”
“AllAccess+Analytics truly makes the massive temporal archive of DigitalGlobe imagery quickly accessible both for viewing and analysis,” said Peter Becker, Product Manager for Imagery at Esri. “By running ArcGIS Image Server next to the cloud storage, access to the information content in the imagery is significantly improved.”
The AllAccess+Analytics subscription service will be sold by DigitalGlobe to Esri customers licensed for ArcGIS Image Server 10.5 (deployed in Amazon Web Services US-EAST-1 region). The service will be launched to a select number of initial customers in the coming months, with broader availability later in the year.
