DigitalGlobe + NTT GEOSPACE... A Geospatial Grounding (Imagery)

[SatNews] These two companies have combined forces to present a new on-demand imagery source...

DigitalGlobe (NYSE: DGI) and NTT GEOSPACE (NTT KUUKAN JYOUHOU CORPORATION) have launched a new online geospatial intelligence service powered by DigitalGlobe. The service, named GEOSPACE CDS, features on-demand access to imagery sourced from DigitalGlobe's suite of content services, including DigitalGlobe Global Basemap™ and DigitalGlobe FirstLook™. Using the web-based GEOSPACE CDS interface, users quickly find and begin using the images they need from the complete DigitalGlobe imagery archive of the region, which is the largest and most frequently refreshed library available today. The archive includes more than 80 million photo tiles, covering the majority of the Japanese landmass. New images of the region are being consistently captured by DigitalGlobe satellites and added to the library, so users can be confident they are finding and accessing the most up-to-date imagery available.

NTT GEOSPACE, a recently launched affiliate company of Nippon Telegraph and Telephone (NYSE: NTT), operates in partnership with Hitachi Solutions in the region. The two companies recently signed an agreement establishing NTT GEOSPACE as an authorized provider of DigitalGlobe imagery.
