Cut through the haze and see more detail


All satellite imagery is affected at some level by light-wave scattering from haze, water vapor and particles in the atmosphere. DigitalGlobe Atmospheric Compensation (AComp) cuts through that haze—giving satellite images a crispness and clarity that rivals the ground-level view.

• Image clarity. Removes the effects of light-wave scattering from haze, water vapor and particulates in the atmosphere.

• Collection viability. Significantly increases the amount of viable imagery obtained from new collection.

• Image library availability. Makes previously marginal or unusable images viable for analysis.

• Enhanced insight. Empowers highly accurate analysis and expedited extraction of information.

• Automation. Allows images to be processed in bulk without manual intervention.

Better image quality. Improved collection. More confidence.
