In today’s always-on environment, speed and accuracy of information are more critical than ever before. DigitalGlobe’s founder and CTO, Dr. Walter Scott, will demonstrate how the current state-of-the-art in satellite imagery technology – and innovations on the ground including DigitalGlobe’s geospatial cloud and value added solutions – are filling that need, changing the way we live and work by helping businesses and consumers alike create meaning out of what has proven to be so much more than mere pixels.
