DigitalGlobe joins NAVTEQ developer zone
DigitalGlobe, a provider of high resolution earth imagery, and NAVTEQ have announced a new relationship aimed at improving support to software developers using NAVTEQ map data who want to include high-resolution satellite and aerial imagery from DigitalGlobe in their applications.

As part of the agreement, DigitalGlobe becomes the latest member of the Partner Zone program on the NAVTEQ Network for Developers (NN4D) and will provide developers access to sample imagery free of charge for a limited term during the software development process.

"Our Digital Map Organization has long utilized imagery from DigitalGlobe to supplement the sources used in creation of our maps in parts of the U.S. and the rest of the world," said Marc Naddell, NAVTEQ's vice president, partner and developer programs. "This new agreement will help to meet the imagery needs of the growing population of software developers building all types of location-oriented applications from navigation and fleet management to public safety and supply-chain management systems to consumer mobile and online applications."
