Full Resolution SWIR and Multispectral WorldView-3 Sample is Now Live

Well, this article continues to be one of the most popular month after month, so we decided to keep it live for a good while longer but move it over to the Tips & Tech section of our newsletter. Enjoy!

We are happy to announce that a full resolution WorldView-3 (WV3) 8-band shortwave infrared (SWIR) and 8-band multispectral (MS) sample is now live on the Apollo Mapping website!

The sample can be accessed using the following link; just fill out this short form and then scroll to the bottom of the next page to find the compressed WV3 imagery file. You will want to use 7-Zip to extract the ZIP file – it is a freeware program you can find here.

Now an important note to our readers: while WV3 collects 3.7-meter (m) 8-band SWIR data, current US government regulations restrict the resolution to 7.5-m for all SWIR sales.

Here are a few key product specifications for this full resolution WV3 SWIR, MS and panchromatic imagery sample:
