I'm very excited to be able to merge 2 new worldwide imagery layers into the editor-layer-index today!
These layers are made available by DigitalGlobe specifically for OpenStreetMap use.

  • DigitalGlobe-Premium is a mosaic composed of DigitalGlobe basemap with select regions filled with +Vivid or custom area of interest imagery, 50cm resolution or better, and refreshed more frequently with ongoing updates
  • DigitalGlobe-Standard is a curated set of imagery covering 86% of the earth's landmass, with 30-60cm or resolution where available, backfilled by Landsat. Average age is 2.31 years, with some areas updated 2x year.

These new sources are a great opportunity for OpenStreetMap, as they cover many parts of the world that previously had no usable imagery! Thanks, DigitalGlobe & partners! ❤️ 🛰

Since there has not been an official announcement yet apparently i suppose license details are to come. The attribution link currently provided to here: https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/DigitalGlobe refers to the Mapbox Satellite layer which should probably be clearly distinguished from these new image sources - even if they are also served through Mapbox infrastructure.

Given the rather generic names of the layers it might be a good idea to add a description field detailing the differences (i.e. why should a mapper want to use 'Standard' and not 'Premium').

Official announcement from DG: http://blog.digitalglobe.com/news/digitalglobe-satellite-imagery-launch-for-openstreetmap/

And I've updated the wiki with the EULA: https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/DigitalGlobe

I have a specification for Standard vs Premium, will post, just need to determine best location for the spec.

Thanks everyone!
