DigitalGlobe Buys Crowdsourcing Firm Tomnod

Digital GlobeDigitalGlobe (NYSE: DGI) has acquired crowdsourcing technology company Tomnod for an undisclosed amount in a move to add Tomnod’s information capture and validation services to its portfolio.

DigitalGlobe’s analytics teams will gather data from Tomnod’s crowdsourced earth observation imagery information and aim to provide clients insights from that information,  DigitalGlobe said Monday.

Tomnod’s staff will move to DigitalGlobe’s headquarters in Longmont, Colo. following the purchase.
