DigitalGlobe Acquires eMap International 11.03.2003

Geographic information provider better positioned to serve the future needs of commercial customers.

DigitalGlobe announced it has completed definitive negotiations to acquire eMap International (eMap), a Reddick, Fla. based geo-spatial consulting practice specializing in geospatial planning, design and integration. eMap International will become a wholly owned subsidiary of DigitalGlobe with David Nale, founder, certified photogrammetrist, mapping scientist and professional land surveyor, serving as president.

"The new frontier of the commercial marketplace's use of GIS data lies in the integration of spatial data with other core information management systems to become the centerpiece of an organization's information assets. Spatial data will no longer be an isolated tool but a central component to how companies leverage information for competitive advantage," said Henry Dubois, DigitalGlobe's president. "The acquisition of eMap better positions DigitalGlobe to lead the way in guiding commercial organizations as they begin to fully utilize spatial data as the powerful tool that it is."

"DigitalGlobe's high resolution QuickBird satellite offers tremendous potential to the global mapping community and I am pleased to dedicate more than 30 years of professional experience to furthering the advancement of DigitalGlobe in serving the imagery and mapping needs of the civil government market," said David Nale, president and CEO of eMap. "The future belongs to the company that anticipates the needs of its customers and DigitalGlobe is doing just that."
