Standard Imagery

For users with knowledge of remote sensing applications

  

Choose from over 2.7 billion km2 in our archive or submit a new collection request.

The Standard Imagery products are designed for users with knowledge of remote sensing applications and image processing tools that require data of modest absolute geometric accuracy and/or large area coverage. They use DigitalGlobe’s constellation of satellites, which include QuickBird, WorldView-1, and WorldView-2. Standard Imagery products are available in two varieties: Basic Standard and Ortho Ready Standard.

Delivery

Standard Imagery can be acquired directly from the DigitalGlobe archive or you can submit a new collection request. Standard Imagery is ordered by area, with a minimum purchase of 25 km2 for archive or 100 km2 for tasking orders, up to a maximum of 10,000 km2 per order. If your order crosses more than one strip, one standard imagery product per scene is delivered. Products are delivered on your choice of standard digital media with Image Support Data files including image metadata.
