WorldView-4, the latest addition to the DigitalGlobe satellite fleet, joins WorldView-3 as the second commercial 30 cm optical sensor in a 617 km orbit.
Both most technologically advanced satellites offer true 30 cm panchromatic, combined with four 1.24 m multispectral resolution and an accuracy of 4 m CE90 at nadir.
These characteristics make WorldView-4 and WorldView-3 the perfect tandem for collecting large areas of 30 cm data very rapidly.
Thanks to the capabilities of their new ground station and the direct access to the entire DigitalGlobe satellite fleet, European Space Imaging starts a new era in the availability of highest resolution imagery in Europe. Starting from 2017, it is expected the collection of more than two times the entire European land mass with the 30 cm satellite constellation alone.
The Munich-based company is now in a unique position to directly task five very high resolution satellites (GeoEye-1, WorldView-1, WorldView-2, WorldView-3 and WorldView-4). This speeds up the whole process of planning, collection, data downlink and delivery and allows to quickly deliver satellite imagery products to customers in Europe, North Africa, CIS countries and the Middle East.
Did you know that WorldView-4 is able to take images at a wide range of angles and distances and still collect super-sharp images?
