About My DigitalGlobe and EarthWatch

My DigitalGlobe and EarthWatch are web-based applications to quickly and easily view, analyze, and download DigitalGlobe data. Your subscription may contain DigitalGlobe satellite or aerial imagery, or even custom sources of geospatial data. My DigitalGlobe and EarthWatch allow you to identify the best available image(s) for your area of interest and then view and download them in the format that integrates most efficiently into your workflow.

DigitalGlobe's most current imagery, the "global daily take," adds 800–1,000 strips equaling 1–1.5 million km2 each day with these specifications:

  • Cloud Cover: 50% equatorial, 35% outside equatorial, or as NGA-directed
  • Off-Nadir Angle: 0–30 degrees
  • Digital Elevation Models (DEMs):

    • SRTM 90m
    • USGS National Elevation Dataset (NED) 30m over CONUS & Alaska, NED 10m over Hawaii
    • InterMap World 30m (ASTER-based) north of 60⁰

NOTE: Some features are not available when viewing My DigitalGlobe or EarthWatch on a mobile device.

In addition to the My DigitalGlobe or EarthWatch application, you can also access your My DigitalGlobe or EarthWatch subscription data using third-party tools like ArcMap. See Third-Party Tools.
