Russia has 22 percent of the world’s forests.

DigitalGlobe says it will significantly expand delivery of high-resolution imagery to Roslesinforg, a division of Russia's Federal Forestry Agency.

Forested regions account for approximately half of Russia's land mass. In total, they are equivalent in size to the entire land mass of the United States and represent about 22 percent of the world's forests.

In 2011, Roslesinforg selected Sovzond, DigitalGlobe's Platinum Reseller in Russia, to supply satellite imagery to better manage key forestry regions across the Russian Federation. The new contract more than doubles the amount of imagery to be delivered and greatly increases the regions covered to help the agency protect against illegal logging and manage urban development.

"We are uniquely positioned to address the challenge of monitoring change across exceptionally large areas," said Andrea Bersan, international vice president at DigitalGlobe. "Using the superior collection capacity and short cycle revisit capabilities of our three-satellite constellation, Roslesinforg will soon be able to access vital information across every square kilometer of forest in the country, helping their experts gain on-demand insight for planning, protection and management.”
