DigitalGlobe, Inc. has announced an expanded partnership agreement with Mapbox that will make 30 cm imagery basemaps of hundreds of cities and areas of interest around the world available to users of the Mapbox platform. Mapbox is the first commercial mapping platform to purchase 30 cm WorldView-3 imagery available with DigitalGlobe’s Basemap +Metro product, and the new content will begin flowing into the Mapbox platform in the months ahead. Basemap +Metro provides easy access to up-to-date, high-resolution imagery of thousands of major metropolitan areas globally. Nearly 300 of these cities now feature 30 cm satellite imagery, the sharpest and most detailed satellite imagery available on the commercial market. Regularly refreshed imagery is mosaicked together to provide a consistent view of the urban landscape and the result is a virtually seamless, highly accurate view of each metro area.
