DigitalGlobe Signs New Customer for its Geospatial Big Data Platform
[Via Satellite 02-11-2015] DigitalGlobe announced a new agreement to provide Exogenesis — a provider of advanced analytics, algorithm development, and predictive modeling and simulation — with access to its Geospatial Big Data (GBD) platform. Under the agreement, Exogenesis has subscribed to DigitalGlobe’s GBD service to facilitate new product development enabled by large-scale data analysis. The agreement includes access to algorithms, expertise, and petabytes of high-resolution satellite imagery collected over the past 15 years.
DigitalGlobe’s cloud-based GBD offering is a platform-as-a-service model that provides easy access to the company’s image library. It is designed to create a new ecosystem in which partners and developers can leverage their expertise and API’s to create new customer solutions without the cost of owning and operating costly IT infrastructure. DigitalGlobe expects the GBD platform to pave the way for new analytic products serving the insurance, forestry, oil and gas, and mining industries.
