divider

IKONOS, the world’s first high-resolution commercial color imaging satellite, was launched on September 24, 1999 from Vandenburg Air Force Base in California. The IKONOS satellite collected Panchromatic imagery at 0.82m and Multispectral imagery at 3.2m (at nadir.)  IKONOS ceased new collections in January 2015, however its 15+ year imagery archive is still available and DigitalGlobe’s robust constellation WorldView-1, WorldView-2, WorldView-3
and GeoEye-1) remains available for new satellite imagery collections.
