High Resolution Imagery Collections – Pléiades 1 – July 2013, Global

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.

P1_Globe_July2013This map shows the areas imaged by Pléiades 1 from July 1 to July 31, 2013 over the globe. Please note that in many instances, multiple images were collected over the same area which is difficult to portray on this static map.
