In this monthly piece, we give our readers a sense of the high-resolution imagery coverage collected over a specific geography during a three month 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.
