DigitalGlobe, a Maxar Technologies company, has announced the commercial release of Geospatial Big Data (GBDX) Notebooks, allowing customers to easily extract valuable insight they want from DigitalGlobe’s GBDX platform.

GBDX Notebooks leverages the familiar open source Jupyter Notebooks environment to provide access to DigitalGlobe’s 18-year, 100 PB library of high-resolution, multispectral imagery, as well as pre-built machine learning and remote sensing algorithms. In addition to three e-commerce subscription levels, GBDX Notebooks offers a community tier, furnishing customers with ready access to the latest imagery from NASA’s Landsat satellite, European Space Agency’s (ESA) Sentinel satellite, DigitalGlobe’s Open Data Program, and DigitalGlobe’s complete Ikonos archive, a 15-year imagery library.

Using one of the three available e-commerce tiers, customers can develop and run at scale proprietary algorithms, Maxar-developed algorithms, or open source algorithms, including mapping navigable airspace for drones, assessing forest fire risk to buildings, and change detection for boat traffic.
