LONGMONT, Colo. (AP) - Longmont-based DigitalGlobe is expecting sharper satellite images from space to boost revenue next year.

According to the Denver Post (https://tinyurl.com/o93vmyx ), the company will be allowed to sell 30-centimeter resolution Earth images captured by its WorldView-3 satellite, allowing customers to zoom in on objects a foot across on the ground.

Until recently, Earth images sharper than 50-centimeter resolution were prohibited to be sold to non-U.S. government customers.

DigitalGlobe has signed multi-year agreements with companies to monitor gas pipelines in Asia from space. They will also assist a power company in Brazil with reservoir management.
