Digital-GlobeDigitalGlobe is planning to enter the estimated $40 billion geospatial big data market in an effort to expand its business, the Denver Post reported Thursday.

Kristen Leigh Painter writes DigitalGlobe executives told investors Wednesday at a Denver conference that the company plans to grow beyond being a satellite imagery provider.
