Maxar achieves first digital high-resolution basemap of the Earth, featuring consistent 50 cm resolution and 10 m CE90 spatial accuracy over 90% of landmass. This breakthrough introduced the ability to map any location with consistent and continuous coverage.
Planet launches its web portal, Planet Explorer, offering access to global imagery at 30-40 m resolution, and 3-5 m imagery over the United States.
Maxar launches the SecureWatch Earth Intelligence access platform, enabling 24/7 on-demand streaming of its high-resolution imagery mosaics enabling unprecedented monitoring and change detection capabilities at metro and global scale.
Maxar develops machine learning-based mosaicking technologies that enable annual global builds and increased accuracy of 8.5 m CE90, including 30 cm GSD coverage over 2,500 global metro areas.
30 cm pixel size moves from the size of a 21 inch baking sheet to the size of a 12 inch dinner plate.
Maxar begins annual content updates to its global and metro-based imagery mosaics, enabling improved accuracy for mapping and change detection.

Proprietary machine learning capabilities increase global basemap accuracy to 5 m CE90 with minimal shear as well as sub-30 cm GSD for select areas, enhancing visualization and usability of Maxar raster products.
Sub-30 cm improves clarity of small features like bus stops and utility lines.
