>>Does Digital Globe supply Bing images?  Just curious, they are always referred to as different products.

Yes, Microsoft licenses DigitalGlobe imagery for many parts of the world, you’ll notice the attribution in the Bing Maps platform. In various threads, I’ve seen Bing imagery “versus” DigitalGlobe imagery, and that is usually a contradiction. The proper way of characterizing it is: DigitalGlobe imagery through the Bing platform versus DigitalGlobe imagery being made available during this crisis. https://www.digitalglobe.com/partners/platform-partners/microsoft
