High-Resolution Imagery Collections – Pléiades 1 – South America, Dec. 2017 to Feb. 2018

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.

This map shows the areas imaged by the Pléiades 1 constellation from December 1, 2017 to February 28, 2018 over South America. Please note that in many instances, multiple images were collected over the same area which is difficult to portray on this static map.

Graphic Region of Interest: South America plus off-shore islands

Land Mass Covered: 17,750,994.2 sq km

Time Period: December 1, 2017 to February 28, 2018

High-Resolution Satellite Constellation: Pléiades 1 (i.e. Pléiades 1A and 1B)

Pléiades 1 Constellation Imaging Statistics – South America
