How to Access Data

Project Proposal (Restrained)

  1. Go to the ESA User Services Portal
  2. Register or log in to EO Sign In
  3. After logging in, complete and submit the form with your proposed use of the data
  4. The proposal will be evaluated by ESA, which normally takes between 4 and 6 weeks
  5. Upon successful evaluation, you will receive a confirmation email, which describes the amount of data to be provided, and details of how to order the data

Description

WorldView-4 high resolution optical products are available as part of the Maxar Standard Satellite Imagery products from the QuickBird, WorldView-1/-2/-3/4, and GeoEye-1 satellites. All details about the data provision, data access conditions and quota assignment procedure are described into the Terms of Applicability available in Resources section.

In particular, WorldView-4 offers archive panchromatic products up to 0.31 m GSD resolution, and 4-Bands Multispectral products up to 1.24 m GSD resolution.

Band Combination Data Processing Level Resolution
Panchromatic and 4-bands Standard (2A) / View Ready Standard (OR2A) 15 cm HD, 30 cm HD, 30 cm, 40 cm, 50/60 cm
View Ready stereo 30 cm, 40 cm, 50/60 cm
Map Ready (Ortho) 1:12.000 Orthorectified 15 cm HD, 30 cm HD, 30 cm, 40 cm, 50/60 cm


The options for 4-Bands are the following:

  • 4-Band Multispectral (BLUE, GREEN, RED, NIR1)
  • 4-Band Pan-sharpened (BLUE, GREEN, RED, NIR1)
  • 4-Band Bundle (PAN, BLUE, GREEN, RED, NIR1)
  • 3-Bands Natural Colour (pan-sharpened BLUE, GREEN, RED)
  • 3-Band Colored Infrared (pan-sharpened GREEN, RED, NIR1)

Native 30 cm and 50/60 cm resolution products are processed with MAXAR HD Technology to generate respectively the 15 cm HD and 30 cm HD products: the initial special resolution (GSD) is unchanged but the HD technique increases the number of pixels and improves the visual clarity achieving aesthetically refined imagery with precise edges and well-reconstructed details.
