Well, for a price. It is commercial, after all. 😉 The US government has now cleared DigitalGlobe to make its highest-resolution imagery available to the general public, and not just US intelligence agencies. This will help the company remain competitive as foreign commercial imaging companies come online, and give customers up to 16 inch resolution for black-and-white images; when their next satellite launches in August, they’ll be cleared to go down to 9.8 inch resolution for black-and-white and 3.3 foot resolution for color imagery.
The world is getting smaller again. 😉
