Custom orthorectified imagery available.

DigitalGlobe announced the availability of QuickBird Custom Orthorectified Imagery products. These products allow customers to supply their own support data used by DigitalGlobe to orthorectify QuickBird satellite imagery, resulting in a custom fit for the customers' existing GIS systems.

Support data is typically provided in the form of Digital Elevation Models (DEMs) and Ground Control Points (GCPs), but other forms of support data, such as existing orthorectified data may also be used. These products are provided at a significant discount to the other orthorectified imagery products offered by DigitalGlobe.

Unsurpassed in detail, QuickBird imagery products have a resolution of 60 centimeters, making them the highest resolution, commercial satellite imagery in the world. DigitalGlobe imagery has numerous commercial applications including GIS, planning and mapping, agricultural monitoring, natural disaster evaluations, environmental assessments, and forestry mapping, among others.

The release of Custom Orthorectified Imagery complements an already diverse product line, including Basic Imagery (raw imagery), Standard Imagery (georeferenced imagery), and Orthorectified Imagery at 1:12,000 and 1:25,000 mapping scales.
