The DigitalGlobe GBDX AnswerFactory web application is supported on Google Chrome. They do not support Microsoft Internet Explorer or Edge and is functional on Firefox but not actively tested. AnswerFactory is a simple web-based interface that allows you to take advantage of the power of GBDX and cloud-based remote sensing at scale. It allows you to create projects containing areas or regions of the globe you care about, then add "answers" within those areas including; locating and counting objects, detecting change, identifying foliage, finding OpenStreetMaps (OSM) new features and more. GBDX is a living digital library that documents our planet with tools to extract meaningful insights at scale from that library. The ecosystem matches the creators of those insights with customers who can turn them into effective solutions. It is geospatial big data made accessible using a cloud-based platform that puts location intelligence at your fingertips. DigitalGlobe combines resolution, accuracy, global coverage and experience to provide high-resolution Earth imagery, data and analysis.
