Quality

at our core.

Because quality means better information and better results.

We define quality as A3C.

Accuracy

Data defined by
ground truth,
matching Earth’s
surface.

Currency

Time-relevant data
delivered when you
need it.

Completeness

The resolution,
coverage, and
spatial richness you require.

Consistency

Content that is
uniform in time,
location, and
appearance.

How do we build quality

into everything we do?

Quality is tracked throughout the entire process.

WHEN YOU SEE THIS SYMBOL

YOU KNOW QUALITY IS BUILT IN.

-->

QUALITY IS INCORPORATED INTO EVERY STEP.

START

Source

How is geospatial data sourced?

SOURCE DEFINED

The source is the point of origin:

our advanced constellation of satellites.

What do our satellites allow you to see?

QUALITY CHECK 1: SOURCE

Accuracy {{ finished }}

Geo-locate features to less than 5 m CE90 or better.

Currency

Real-time coverage of more than 45% of Earth’s surface.

Completeness

Large constellation ensures data continuity over time.

Consistency

Resolution as high as 30 cm and super-spectral capabilities.
QUALITY BUILT IN.

NEXT STEP

Capture

How is geospatial data captured?

CAPTURE DEFINED

Capture is the process of

recording a raw image in lasting form.

QUALITY CHECK 2: CAPTURE

Accuracy

Automated positional accuracy.

Currency

300 million sq km that are less than 2 years old in archive.

Completeness

The world’s largest archive of high-resolution imagery.

Consistency

Set the standard for converting image to surface coordinates.
QUALITY BUILT IN.

NEXT STEP

Enrich

How is geospatial data enriched?

A combination of super- and multi-spectral bands provides more than a pretty picture.

ENRICHMENT DEFINED

Enrichment is the process

of creating decision-ready information.

What can enrichment do to data? What does that do for you?
