      DigitalGlobe, now a business unit of Maxar Technologies, announced a multi-year agreement with Orbital Insight to expand the scope of their existing data partnership and fuel global-scale analytic solutions. Orbital Insight will operate at petabyte-scale as a DigitalGlobe Geospatial Big Data (GBDX) platform partner.

      With broader access to DigitalGlobe’s imagery archive, Orbital Insight will further refine its analytic capabilities, which include use cases such as estimating harvest yields, making more accurate retail predictions, assessing the societal and economic status of large regions, and monitoring global energy and natural resource markets.

      “This expanded partnership allows us to provide more comprehensive and sophisticated insights to our customers across industries,” said Orbital Insight Chief Executive Officer (CEO) James Crawford. “Using DigitalGlobe’s GBDX platform will improve both the resolution and geographic coverage of the data we analyze and interpret. This gives our customers increased precision when making business and policy decisions.”
