WorldView-2, launched in October 2009, is an imaging satellite of DigitalGlobe Inc. of Longmont, CO, USA (follow-on spacecraft to WorldView-1).
WorldView-2 collects images at 0.41m panchromatic and 1.64m 8-bands multi-spectral data.
Along with the Pan (450-800 nm) and the four typical multispectral bands (blue, green, red, NIR), WorldView-2 has four additional bands for enhanced multispectral analysis (coastal blue, yellow, red edge, NIR2). Together they are designed to improve segmentation and classification of land and aquatic features beyond any other space-based remote sensing platform. The additional spectral bands also enable WorldView-2 to more accurately present the world as the human eye can perceive it, creating a more realistic "true colour" view of the world:
