The DigitalGlobe GBDX Authentication API allows you to get access to DigitalGlobe's GBDX platform. GBDX uses OAuth2 for authentication and authorization, and you will need your GBDX username, password, and API key. To make a request to any GBDX API, you'll need an OAuth2 token. It is an open protocol to allow secure authorization in a simple and standard method from web, mobile, and desktop applications. 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 satellite imagery, data and analysis.
