leaders advocating for the adoption of geospatial technologies and
strengthening its contribution in the world economy. DigitalGlobe's
President Dan Jablonsky serves as a patron of this organization. In

industry and promoting the benefits of the commercialization of
geospatial information.

geospatial industry as a whole and help grow the adoption of our
collective capabilities," said Jablonsky. "At DigitalGlobe, we have

efforts to educate, innovate and influence policy to enable the
accessibility of geospatial data and technologies across the globe and
ultimately to Build a Better World."
