LONGMONT, Colo., Dec. 3, 2013—DigitalGlobe saw many changes in 2013, including our combination with GeoEye in February. The combination grew our constellation to five satellites, adding the capability to collect more than one billion square kilometers of imagery to our archive this year alone!
As 2013 comes to a close, we’re looking back in the archive and choosing our favorite images captured by IKONOS, QuickBird, WorldView-1, GeoEye-1 and WorldView-2. Our DigitalGlobe team members helped to narrow the image selections from trillions of pixels to 20 images. Now we’re looking to you to help us select the top image from these chosen 20.
Please join us in voting for DigitalGlobe’s third annual Top Commercial Satellite Image of the Year contest. To vote, simply go to DigitalGlobe’s Facebook page to see the Top Image Contest – 2013 Top 20 album. You can “like” as many images as you want, but only the five images with the most likes will make it to the final round. You have two weeks to vote, campaign for, and promote the images you want to see in the top five.
On December 17 we will announce the five images with the overall most “likes.” The images will be added to a new album, Top Image Contest – 2013 Top 5 album, where you can “like” your favorite image.
Want additional votes in this final round? Follow DigitalGlobe on Twitter, Pinterest, and Google+ to retweet, repin, and +1 your favorite images. We will announce the winning image of 2013 in early January 2014.
We want you to be the judge, so join the conversation and vote for the Top Image of 2013!
