DigitalGlobe Imagery for the United States and Western Europe now available

Esri added over 50 terabytes of new imagery from DigitalGlobe to the World Imagery map. This release includes 30cm imagery for the continental United States and 60cm imagery for large parts of Western Europe. This greatly expands the coverage and detail in these two regions. Previously, there was submeter resolution data mostly in urban areas. Now the map includes submeter resolution coverage consistently throughout the regions where imagery was added.
