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.
