PSMA Australia will use DigitalGlobe's satellite imagery for the Geoscape program that seeks to create a digital representation of the built environment for approximately 20 million buildings across Australia that include building footprints, solar panels and rooftop materials, DigitalGlobe said Tuesday.

“Having access to precise information about the built environment is critical for a number of industries in Australia including insurance, urban planning, emergency management and business intelligence,“ said Dan Paull, CEO of PSMA Australia.

Paull added that WorldView-4 will help PSMA Australia meet its clients' requirements through the annual refresh of Geoscape-related data that covers building heights, land cover and elevation.

DigitalGlobe started to provide its first customer direct access to the WorldView-4 satellite imagery in February and is scheduled to make imagery data available to all commercial clients by Aug. 31, Thursday.
