Advanced mapping capabilities

As the source, Maxar delivers expedited high-resolution satellite imagery and derived data for accurate mapping and analysis–anywhere in the world.

This demo provides an interactive look at how Maxar Mosaics, derived data, AI-driven analytics and intelligence teams can help alleviate common mapping challenges that impact mission planning.

Since the fall of Qaddafi in 2011, political factions and conflict have seized the oil-rich nation of Libya. In 2015, the United Nations stood up a Tripoli-based administration, the Government of National Accord, which is supported by surrounding tribal militias. Foreign influence gave rise to the Benghazi-based House of Representatives government, led by ex-Qaddafi military official Khalifa Haftar and the Libyan National Army.

Rival groups have waged a nine-year civil war, riddling the urban landscape with destruction and reconstruction—a mapping nightmare for humanitarian, foreign intelligence and commercial organizations working within the country. Here's a look at detected change across the city of Tripoli from 2011 to 2019.

What is happening?

Maxar foundational mapping capabilities save time and resources by applying AI and machine learning techniques to produce scalable, consistent high-quality data for planning, intelligence and analysis–helping you visualize and understand what is happening where.


With a guaranteed geolocation accuracy of ≤5 m CE90, Maxar delivers mission-grade data and confidence for critical decisions.


The Maxar constellation collects more than 3 million sq km of high-resolution satellite imagery every day. With the launch of WorldView Legion, we will collect more than 5 million sq km per day–increasing global 30 cm and <30 cm coverage with revisit up to 15 times per day over select areas.

Speed and Scalability

Leveraging advanced AI, machine learning capabilities and trained crowd curation, Ecopia automates extraction of cartographic quality features with 95% valid interpretation rate–reducing the time and cost of manual methods.

A secure source, end-to-end

With our robust library of high-resolution satellite imagery and derived geospatial data, we have the highest quality global foundation to apply powerful AI and advanced analytics that can answer complex questions at scale.

What will happen next?

Using our Signature Analyst Server, Maxar experts identified key indicators in known areas of conflict to predict where the next attacks could occur. This level of analysis enables interested parties to consider all potential targets.

Find the pattern in the chaos


Maxar Earth Intelligence verifies and conflates multisource data at scale, helping analysts narrow the scope of interest with human geography data and other sources of relevant information to build comprehensive context.


By identifying patterns of activity and points of interest, our special intelligence analysts were able to home in on high-risk areas. These insights plus up-to-date city-scale maps enable better situational awareness, like assessment of medical and relief needs plus route planning for safe distribution of supplies.

Maxar mapping capabilities for any mission

Unmapped or poorly mapped areas

Maxar basemaps provide a stunning, virtually seamless, high-resolution image layer that expedites mapping, visualization and analytics over any AOI.

Up-to-date maps

With flexible collection planning and advanced machine learning, Maxar can detect change on a global scale and deliver updates critical to your AOI.

Analysis-ready map data

Maxar simplifies the complexities of gathering and conflating multisource data, giving customers a single, accurate view for their world.

Enriching maps

With the world’s largest satellite image library and advanced AI-driven analytics, Maxar offers historical and current data with advanced feature extraction and attribution.

Maxar advanced mapping capabilities can support your mission at any level, from premium quality basemaps to full-service intelligence reports.


Maxar offers a suite of high-resolution basemaps, securely derived from our Earth imaging constellation and updated annually. Vivid and Metro basemaps are available off the shelf, but we also offer built-to-order Dynamic and Custom basemaps for unique program needs.

Persistent Change Monitoring

Persistent Change Monitoring (PCM) is an image-based change detection data layer that uses patented Maxar scale-and sensor-independent algorithms to draw immediate attention to areas of new construction and other activity.

Building Footprints

Skip straight to analysis with Ecopia Building Footprints powered by Maxar. By leveraging the most advanced high-resolution satellite imagery, artificial intelligence and crowdsourcing capabilities, we produce precision footprint shapefiles (95% accuracy) at the scale your projects demand.

Human Landscape

Human Landscape is a foundational human geography dataset that provides rich attribution and metadata at a countrywide scale. Each dataset comprises 60+ individual data layers across 13 standard human geography themes–reducing operating costs and accelerating time-to-action for complex missions.

Signature Analyst Server

This patented cloud-based analytics modeling tool enables analysts to examine thousands of geospatial data layers to discover spatial relationships, patterns and preferences associated with different forms of human activity–insight that can then be used to predict where similar activities may occur in the future.

Special intelligence reports and programs

Our agile teams of subject matter experts and analysts can deliver rapid intelligence reports for short-term needs or geospatial services for ongoing intelligence programs.

Help us better prepare by providing some foundational information about your interests and organization.
