DigitalGlobe, a global provider of high-resolution world imagery content solutions, announced that it has signed an agreement with Telogis, a global platform for Location-Based Services (LBS). Under the agreement, Telogis says its developers will have access to DigitalGlobe’s high resolution imagery, allowing its customers to identify assets in relationship to landmarks, providing greater intelligence and management capability across the enterprise.

“The ability to easily overlay satellite imagery in our application gives our customers a new level of visibility,” says Dave Cozzens, chief executive officer of Telogis. “The Digital Globe high-resolution capability provides a powerful tool, working together with the map views and other tools, to enable our enterprise clients to more efficiently manage their resources and vehicles.”

DigitalGlobe, a provider of Earth imagery for Web portals and mobile mapping applications, says its high-resolution satellite constellation (QuickBird, WorldView-1 and WorldView-2 launching in Q3/2009) and aerial program collect nearly 1 million square kilometers of Earth imagery each day, with much of this imagery available via its online ImageBuilder service.

“Satellite imagery adds a new dimension to the many strong applications Telogis provides,” says Michael McCarthy, senior director of business development and consumer segments at DigitalGlobe. “DigitalGlobe is looking forward to this alliance with Telogis and how ImageBuilder can enable easier asset management for users worldwide.”
