The addition of Bluesky’s data provides instant access to various datasets of Great Britain:
- Current high-resolution imagery ranging from 12.5 cm to 25 cm depending on area of interest
- Historical imagery offerings dating back to 2006 available for custom order
- Convenient access by a single storefront along with Hexagon’s existing coverage of Europe and North America
“Bluesky is a long-standing, trusted partner of Hexagon, and we’re excited to integrate its high-quality aerial imagery into the HxGN Content Program,” says John Welter, President Geospatial Content Solutions at Hexagon. “Through this partnership, Hexagon customers can gain real-world insights of Great Britain for confident analysis and decision-making. The initiative is an excellent example of how we enable our partners to participate in our global program while they serve their local customers.”
