About SecureWatch

SecureWatch is a web-based application 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. SecureWatch allows 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 SecureWatch on a mobile device.

In addition to the SecureWatch application, you can also access your SecureWatch subscription data using third-party tools like ArcGIS. See Third-Party Tools.
