DigitalGlobe and TERI University Announce WorldView-2 Joint Research Initiative

“With the growing concern over global climate change, institutions around the world are increasingly looking to technological innovation to help track, monitor and analyze changes in our natural environment,” said DigitalGlobe Chairman and CEO Jill Smith. “DigitalGlobe’s WorldView-2 is the only satellite capable of delivering 8-Band multi-spectral imagery, which generates far more detailed and accurate data on changes in environmental conditions and urban areas. We’re eager to see what new applications the distinguished scientists at TERI University develop.”

DigitalGlobe’s constellation of satellites and expanding ground station network offer an industry-leading collection capacity of up to 700 million square kilometers each year. The company’s unmatched refresh and monitoring capabilities ensure its ImageLibrary is up-to-date and accurate. This capacity allows institutions such as The Energy and Resources Institute at TERI University unparalleled access to almost real time high-resolution imagery. This imagery can be put to use to track and monitor a number of climate change issues including the Gulf of Mexico oil spill, the eruption of EyjafjallajOkull on Iceland, deforestation across the Amazon rainforest and, in India, effective water distribution and irrigation.
