The satellite was launched on September 6, 2008 from Vandenberg Air Force Base (USA). The GeoEye-1 satellite was previously owned by GeoEye.

After the merger of GeoEye and DigitalGlobe, it is operated and owned by DigitalGlobe.

The GeoEye-1 satellite uses some of the most advanced technologies that commercial remote sensing systems have ever been equipped with. The satellite provides panchromatic images with a 0.41 m resolution and multispectral images with a 1.65 m resolution. The satellite can provide up to 350,000 km² of synthesized multispectral images per day. Such a high performance is ideal for large-scale mapping projects. The GeoEye-1 satellite features a revisit time of no more than three days for any point of the planet.
