DigitalGlobe, via their blog, has announced a new e-commerce offering in their DG online store. The store will be their imagery hub for any press outlets interested in obtaining imagery of breaking news or human interest stories around the globe. They will also offer access to Analysis Center reports, providing detailed insight into disasters, political events, and other categories. For the consumer the store is also a way to purchase poster-sized jpegs of imagery collected by their sensors.
Found online at http://store.digitalglobe.com the user will be greeted with several options for search including: news/media, cool places, world events, sports, and a featured image hub. From that point images are stored by geography, for example, you could easily locate an image or poster of the Opera House in Sydney, Australia… very nice as I’m a huge fan of imagery as art… cool stuff from DigitalGlobe! I can just picture one hanging on my office wall right now!
