Minimize WorldView-3
Web Content Image

With the launch of WorldView-3 on 13 August 2014, the DigitalGlobe constellation was able to set a new technological bar for commercial satellite imagery, offering customers the highest available resolution, revisit rate, capacity and spectral diversity.

WorldView-3 is operating in a sun-synchronous orbit at an altitude of 617 km, which results in an average revisit time of < 1 day.

WorldView-3 collects images at 0.31m panchromatic, 1.24m 8 VNIR bands, 3.7m in the 8 SWIR bands and a 30m resolution in the CAVIS (Clouds, Aerosols, Vapors, Ice and Snow) bands:
