The Apollo Mapping team behind Image Hunter is excited to announce the addition of four more satellites to our already extensive archive: Gaofen-1 and GaoFen-2, Deimos-2, ZiYuan-3 (mono) and our first stereo option in Image Hunter, panchromatic ZiYuan 3!
We constantly are striving to increase the quality and breadth of our satellite imagery archive and can’t wait for you to check out our new options. Our hope is to make searching for the right imagery solution for your project as easy as possible; and by consolidating the archives of many satellites spread across multiple companies, we believe we are doing just that. So the next question you may have is what kind of capability are we working with here with these new satellites? Let’s dive right in!
