CartoDB and DigitalGlobe have partnered to bring satellite data to mapmakers of all levels in order to help them visually explain the events and information shaping our world. The service allows access to various base maps and the latest satellite content from DigitalGlobe, enabling journalists, publishers, bloggers and web developers to easily incorporate high-resolution imagery into their online content.

The platform uses the CartoDB Editor, an online tool that enables users to analyse and visualise location data, supported by publishing features and collaboration tools.

“Our collaboration with DigitalGlobe is a significant development for anyone who publishes stories about our world,” said Javier de la Torre, co-founder and CEO of CartoDB. “This partnership will democratise access to high-resolution satellite imagery and data on-demand, incorporating satellite images into interactive stories and content at an affordable price point.”

The platform is available through free limited accounts and a range of different paid access levels. Paid accounts to the service provide access to high-resolution imagery captured as recently as 24 hours ago, and archive imagery dating back to 2011.
