divider graphic

QuickBird was launched on October 18, 2001 from Vandenburg Air Force Base in California and was able to collect over 75 million square kilometers of satellite imagery annually. On orbit for more than 13 years, the QuickBird mission ended January 27, 2015. However, imagery from QuickBird is still available from archive and DigitalGlobe’s robust constellation (WorldView-1, WorldView-2, WorldView-3 and GeoEye-1) remains available for new satellite imagery collections.
