DigitalGlobe Foundation Content Partnership

In order to advance technology and continue growth, Hexagon Geospatial has partnered with the DigitalGlobe Foundation to provide academia with the appropriate software to solve real world problems with innovation.

DigitalGlobe Foundation supplies imagery to support educational projects. In conjunction, Hexagon Geospatial will provide free short project licenses to approved students and professors to complete their proposed projects.

Hexagon Geospatial will provide support to determine the pertinent software to use from the Power Portfolio, the M.App Portfolio, and the duration of the license for the extent of the project.
