WorldView-3 30cm Global High-Resolution Satellite Imagery

divider


WorldView-3, having successfully launched on August 14, 2014, is the world’s first super-spectral, high-resolution commercial satellite. SWIR bands penetrate haze, fog, smog, dust and smoke and the spectral diversity enables new imagery applications.

With an average revisit time of <1 day, WorldView-3 is capable of collecting up to 680,000 km2 per day. WorldView-3 provides 31 cm panchromatic resolution, 1.24 m multispectral resolution, 3.7 m short wave infrared resolution and 30 m CAVIS resolution.
