The predecessor company, GeoEye was formed in January 2006 when Virginia-based ORBIMAGE
purchased the assets of Colorado-based Space Imaging, which began performing geospatial
services for the U.S. government in July 1987. In December 2010, GeoEye purchased
SPADAC, a Virginia-based geospatial predictive analytics company. GeoEye Analytics
provides geospatial predictive analytic solutions to over 40 customers in key markets
including defense, intelligence and homeland security.
On January 31, 2013, DigitalGlobe and GeoEye combined, building a company that brings
a comprehensive suite of geospatial information products and services to help customers
solve an increasingly complex array of problems.
In March 2007, the Company formed the GeoEye Foundation. The Foundation is a 501
(c)(3) non-profit organization founded on the belief that we have an opportunity
to share our technology and resources to help train others to map, measure and monitor
the Earth. The Foundation makes awards to students, universities and non-governmental
organizations that use satellite imagery in their research. Students have used our
imagery for archeology, land cover assessment, climate change, forestry, geospatial
intelligence and many other studies. Non-governmental organizations have used our
imagery for humanitarian relief and disaster response.
