High-Resolution Imagery Collections – Pléiades 1 – Australia, January to March 2016

In this monthly piece, we give our readers a sense of the high-resolution imagery coverage collected over a geography during a specified window. To do this, we pick a high-resolution satellite constellation, a defined time period and area of interest, then report key statistics on the total amount of imagery collected in square kilometers (sq km). Without further delay, let’s jump into our analysis.

p1_australia_jan_march_2016This map shows the areas imaged by the Pléiades 1 constellation from January 1 to March 31, 2016 over Australia. Please note that in many instances, multiple images were collected over the same area which is difficult to portray on this static map.
