Real Technology, Real Benefits is a series of articles that explores the connection between satellite imaging technology and real-world applications and benefits. Read Part 1: pointing agility, Part 2: revisit rate & collection capacity and Part 3: image quality.

In the last blog post, we emphasized the need to use the right tool for the job, and implied that there is a role for satellites of varying capabilities. The premise is quite simple: while we believe there is limited value to our customers and partners from accessing low-resolution satellite imagery alone, there is much greater potential for unlocking value when these capabilities are combined—in a well-orchestrated manner—with DigitalGlobe's high-resolution, high-accuracy, broad-area imagery.
