How are exactly defined "Public apps"?

Hi Petr-

Thanks for your question. We define Public Apps as those which do not require the following to access:

  • user login/password protected
  • subscription charges (monthly/recurring or single)
  • internally-facing or behind a corporate/organizational firewall
  • App Store item which requires payment

Generally speaking, any app that the public can freely and easily access.
Let us know if this helps.

Cheers,

I expect that a web application which can be accessed freely and easily by the public, but requires login/password to save or load user-derived data can be powered by the "Startup" plan with the "Derive License", correct?
The startup as a company must charge for some services - but if it is not for restricting access to the app, I expect it aligns to the definition above, could you please confirm?

If the startup is succesful, then they soon or later must upgrade from the "Startup" to the "Business" plan because of the limit of the map views anyway...

Thank you for the clarification in this area...

Hi Petr-

The use case you describe above will fit within the Startup tier, as long as the company (or developer) is not charging a fee for access to the application. Once the application has a need to consume more than 100,000 monthly map views, then an upgrade to the Business tier will provide additional usage.

If the application is open to the public, but requires a fee to access, then a Business tier subscription to DigitalGlobe Maps API is required, even if the expected monthly map views is < 100,000.

Let us know if this helps clarify.
