The insight you need, when you need it, anywhere in the world

COVID19

Maxar's Open Data Program has released an initial set of high-resolution satellite imagery in support of the COVID-19 response efforts. Per requests from our humanitarian partners, this release will include our Metro imagery basemaps for the following African cities: Addis Ababa, Abidjan, Dakar, Lagos, Kano, Ibadan, Ouagadougou, Accra, Luanda, Kinshasa, Nairobi and part of northern Ghana. 
 
  
For anyone who uses the imagery to create derived data or information, please let us know if you’d like to contribute that back to the community along with the source imagery. Any partners looking to share data can contact opendata@maxar.com. Please stay in touch and let us know via email or Twitter (@maxar) how our imagery is supporting your work or your missions at this critical time.

OpenStreetMap Exception

In the licensing terms, DigitalGlobe has a stated exception for OpenStreetMap. OSM is allowed to use imagery released under the Open Data Program.
