Effective February 1, 2013, GeoEye Analytics™ is now DigitalGlobe Analytics.
GeoEye and DigitalGlobe have combined to become one DigitalGlobe, creating a company
capable of providing greater value to customers through an integrated constellation
and a broader set of products and services.
Geospatial analytics is the discipline of uncovering relevant patterns and relationships
related to a place. Everything happens somewhere. DigitalGlobe Analytics’ teams
routinely develop predictive analytic models that process hundreds of layers of
geospatial data to identify the physical, cultural, and social factors that correlate
with terrorism and criminal activity.
Narrowing the Space Search. Our technologies and analytic experts
support the full spectrum of Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR)
operations, from the tasking and collection of current, high-resolution earth imagery
to multi-source processing, exploitation, and dissemination. By helping our customers
understand the geospatial factors that correlate with nefarious activity, we enable
them to put their limited people and resources in the right place at the right time.
In short, we narrow the search space. This makes it possible to predict where future
events such as terrorism are likely to occur.
UAV Mission Planning and Resource Optimization. Predictive analytics
help collection managers develop more effective tasking strategies by pointing sensors
at targets highly correlated with an activity of interest.
Derive Insights From Massive Amounts of Data. We have developed
the expertise and enabling technology required to process and exploit massive amounts
of raster and vector data. This allows us to quickly discover patterns that may
exist across hundreds of layers of spatial data and process data on the fly to deliver
Anticipate and Prevent Criminal Activity. Predictive analytics
enables police command staff and security professionals to identify the not-so-obvious
factors that influence criminal activity. As a result, law enforcement organizations
can proactively place scarce policing resources in the right locations to thwart
Our Approach and Methodology
Multi-Disciplined Analytical Teams.
teamwork is at the core of our methodology. We bring together subject matter experts
who understand counter-terrorism and law enforcement with specialists skilled in
geospatial analysis and data fusion. This approach allows our customers to focus
on their mission while we assemble the right team and tools to provide
integrated intelligence solutions.
Advanced Analytic Tools. Our advanced tools use patented statistical
methodology to analyze past events in a geospatial context, discovering patterns
and relationships to identify where similar events might occur in the future.
Signature Analyst™ is a proven intelligence tool that is used to support counter-terrorism
missions around the world. Intelligence analysts, military planners, and law enforcement
personnel rely on Signature Analyst to help locate high-value targets, identify
weapons caches and safe houses, and disrupt enemy networks.

The team insists on a methodical, structured approach to investigating difficult
questions – a proven approach that yields successful results.
Proven Customer Engagements
DigitalGlobe Analytics has the expertise and enabling technology required to process
and exploit massive amounts of raster and vector data. This allows us to quickly
discover patterns that may exist across hundreds of layers of spatial data and then
process that data on the fly to deliver timely insights. Our work with the Department
of Defense (DoD) and Homeland Security reflects the solutions we deliver.
Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance. Our team of experienced
analysts supports DoD Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR) requirements
in Africa, the Middle East, Southwest Asia, Latin America, and the Pacific. Our
analysts support efforts to better task unmanned aerial vehicles so they can collect
valuable intelligence. We also enable our customers to process and exploit the vast
amounts of data these new sensors generate.
Homeland Security a Force Multiplier on the Home Front. DigitalGlobe
Analytics supports predictive policing pilot projects funded by the U.S. Department
of Homeland Security in several major metropolitan areas. These pilots demonstrate
how our advanced analytic methods, tools, and geospatial predictive software help
uncover and/or disrupt terrorist-criminal plots before they occur. In each pilot,
our analysts work with law enforcement personnel to develop investigation products
using Signature Analyst, a geospatial predictive analytics tool. This process identifies
and acquires relevant the spatial and entity data required to discern likely associations,
activities, and locations of individuals who might pose a threat to the local population.
Defeating the Improvised Explosive Device Threat.
In the global war on terrorism, defeating the improvised explosive device (IED)
threat is a top priority for the DoD. DigitalGlobe Analytics delivers predictive
intelligence solutions needed to defeat the network of bomb makers and interdict
their IED supply chain. Our qualitative and quantitative analytical methodologies
and advanced data-discovery tools assist DoD commands and agencies in this critical
