, the owner and operator of the world’s highest resolution commercial imaging satellite, has partnered with Applitech Infotech as its preferred partner for providing their current and future satellites and imagery products in the Indian market.

This partnership offers Applitech’s customers with the opportunity to fulfill their current and future satellites and imagery product requirements. Our customers can take advantage of DigitalGlobe’s superior products and services, providing an affordable end-to-end solution that includes a full range of imagery products, an extensive and expanding ImageLibrary™ and flexible tasking and delivery options.

To best address the needs of our customers, we offer many outstanding benefits thru our partnership with Digital Globe including:

  • The highest resolution satellite imagery commercially available (61-centimeter panchromatic and 2.44-meter multispectral)
  • A future constellation of satellites to include QuickBird and the WorldView series. The construction of WorldView-1, a high resolution satellite in the 0.5-meter class, is nearly complete and has a planned launch date of 2008
  • The largest image swath width and scene size (approximately 16.5 km 16.5 km at-nadir) in the high resolution satellite industry
  • Flexibility to offer imagery products through new data acquisitions (tasking) or our ImageLibrary™ (archive) to meet a broad range of requirements and applications
  • Comprehensive data tasking, output and delivery options
  • Unparalleled Customer Service
  • Quality control and assurance procedures that deliver products to the highest of standards

In summary, QuickBird satellite — the world’s highest-resolution commercial imaging satellite — provides a significant means to address imagery and mapping requirements across a broad range of needs. Availability of QuickBird imagery allows scientists, mapping professionals and government users easy access to a powerful tool that supports baseline assessments, environmental and emergency planning and natural resource, disaster and geographical information management.

The Applitech-DigitalGlobe Advantage
Applitech provides digital mapping services ranging from cadastral and regional mapping to satellite image analysis and utility mapping. For effective use of geographic information systems and digital database, Applitech provides application development and training services that include development of custom-designed applications, installation of geographic information systems and development and training of in-house personnel to manage the system.

DigitalGlobe is the worlds’ most reliable and responsive provider of spatial imaging and information products.  The 2001 launch of the QuickBird satellite made DigitalGlobe the highest resolution commercial satellite imagery provider in the world. With a focus on advanced image resolution, superior customer service, and through its unmatched commitment to quality, fairness and customer satisfaction, DigitalGlobe makes it easier than ever to use spatial information to improve decisions in a wide variety of commercial and government applications.

Imagery Applications
DigitalGlobe’s high-resolution QuickBird imagery provides the capability to address a myriad of business and scientific analyses never before commercially available from a space-based imaging platform. QuickBird’s panchromatic and multispectral imagery products are currently being used in daily operations for in a wide range of applications. Some of the major applications are mentioned below.

Infrastructure Assessments:
Lines of communication, including roads, rails, airfields and port facilities are readily extracted from the imagery. Specifically, road features including alignments, lanes, centerlines, and surface are identifiable. Similarly, rail infrastructure characteristics (including gauge and capacity) are readily distinguishable, particularly given QuickBird’s measurement accuracy and resolution, which permits individual rails to become visible. The imagery provides for classification of bridges by specific type for road and rail, and determination of their capacities.

Facilities Assessments:
Both the panchromatic and multispectral imagery are very useful in conducting facility analysis, including identification of facility subcomponents by specific functionality. The imagery supports monitoring and detecting change in facilities over time.

Aviation safety:
All airfield components (runways, taxiways, Instrument Landing System, radars, lighting and surface markings) are identifiable in 60-cm imagery, as are all port components (gantry cranes, mobile gantries, conveyors, refueling equipment, fuel and grain storage facilities, individual containers and the color of those containers). Classification of all aircraft is also possible and the imagery is very useful for detecting changes like runway expansion and digging of underground facilities.

A key requirement for many organizations is the ability to effectively monitor their areas of interest. The advanced attributes of QuickBird and worldwide ImageLibrary aids customers in detecting changes. Furthermore, this capability is enhanced by our ability to revisit locations in a timely manner.

QuickBird was specifically designed to support mapping programs and provide data that is both spatially and spectrally accurate. The data can be used to produce traditional hard copy mapping products from 1:50,000 scales up to 1:4,800 large-scale. Our imagery can also be used to support most sectors of security applications.

Industry Assessments:
Our imagery supports identification of key strategic industries such as energy, extraction and manufacturing facilities. Each of these facilities can be analyzed in great detail, providing assessments of what is being produced, the facility capacity for production and its inventory. Moreover, the multispectral imagery provides analysts with critical information on various types of raw material being used in a manufacturing process, as well as potential environmental impacts.

Forestry and Crop Analysis:
High spatial resolution multispectral data can identify not only individual tree crowns, but often the type of tree, biomass, condition, and age class.
