High Resolution Imagery Collections – Pléiades 1 – Scandinavia, Summer 2014

This map shows the areas imaged by the Pléiades 1 constellation from June 1 to August 31, 2014 over Scandinavia. 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.

Graphic Region of Interest: Scandinavia

Land Mass Covered: 1,174,752.7 sq km
