blue arrow DESCRIPTION

The WorldView ESA archive is composed of products acquired by WorldView-1, -2, -3 and -4 satellites and requested by ESA supported projects over their areas of interest around the world

Panchromatic, 4-Bands, 8-Bands and SWIR products are part of the offer, with the resolution at Nadir depicted in the table.

Band Combination Mission GSD Resolution at Nadir GSD Resolution (20° off nadir)
Panchromatic WV-1 50 cm 55 cm
WV-2 46 cm 52 cm
WV-3 31 cm 34 cm
WV-4 31 cm 34 cm
4-Bands WV-2 1.84 m 2.4 m
WV-3 1.24 m 1.38 m
WV-4 1.24 m 1.38 m
8-Bands WV-2 1.84 m 2.4 m
WV-3 1.24 m 1.38 m
SWIR WV-3 3.70 m 4.10 m


The 4-Bands includes various options such as Multispectral (separate channel for Blue, Green, Red, NIR1), Pan-sharpened (Blue, Green, Red, NIR1), Bundle (separate bands for PAN, Blue, Green, Red, NIR1), Natural Colour (pan-sharpened Blue, Green, Red), Coloured Infrared (pan-sharpened Green, Red, NIR). The 8-Bands being an option from Multispectral (COASTAL, Blue, Green, Yellow, Red, Red EDGE, NIR1, NIR2) and Bundle (PAN, COASTAL, Blue, Green, Yellow, Red, Red EDGE, NIR1, NIR2).

The processing levels are:

  • STANDARD (2A): normalised for topographic relief
  • ORTHO READY STANDARD (OR2A): ready for orthorectification (RPB files embedded)
  • ORTHO READY STEREO: collected in-track for stereo viewing and manipulation (not available for SWIR)
  • MAP SCALE ORTHO 1:12,000 Orthorectified: additional processing unnecessary
