We are partnering with Mapbox to bring timely and relevant imagery to OpenStreetMap. As of today you can access DigitalGlobe imagery for tracing through the Mapbox Satellite layer available in popular OpenStreetMap editors like iD or JOSM.

DigitalGlobe has been a supporter and contributor to OpenStreetMap for many years now, our imagery acts as a foundation for extracting information, tracing streets and providing a baseline for vector maps. This is made possible through our industry leading image resolution and accuracy, together with completeness of coverage in our archive, and our ability to refresh on a global scale.

OpenStreetMap is pervasive in many geospatial workflows, such as Location Based Services and Apps, Government intelligence, Humanitarian efforts and many Enterprise verticals. Our work with Mapbox is a continuation of support of OpenStreetMap development, such as our release of imagery for mapping Ebola affected areas. Our plan is to build on this and increase the velocity of mapping the world, with an end goal of providing the most beautiful hybrid map with OpenStreetMap content.

Well done DigitalGlobe! Without imagery there’s no map! This makes mapping possible for areas not yet covered by bing imagery.
