High Resolution Imagery Collections – Pléiades 1 – January 1 to March 31, 2014

P1_Collects_Brazil_Jan_to_Mar2014This map shows the areas imaged by the Pléiades 1 constellation from January 1 to March 31, 2014 over Brazil. Please note that in many instances, multiple images were collected over the same area which is difficult to portray on this static map.

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, 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.
