BREAKING NEWS – WorldView -3 SWIR Now Delivered at 3.7-meter Resolution!!!

We are literally drafting this article the day our July newsletter is being put together (i.e. June 25th) so we have very limited information, but what we do 100% know is that WorldView-3 shortwave infrared (SWIR) data will now be delivered at 3.7-meter (m) resolution starting on July 3rd! According to the details released by Maxar-DigitalGlobe, 3.7-m resolution allows you to see marking at airports now and planes in much more detail – cool stuff for sure, thanks NOAA for easing the rules 🙂

More details will follow in the August Geospatial Times including any pricing implications of the new increased resolution. If you have any questions in the meantime, email us at sales@apollomapping.com.
