High-Resolution Imagery Collections – WorldView-2/3 – Canada and the United States, June to August 2019

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 WorldView-2/3 constellation from June 1 to August 31, 2019 over the primary land masses of Canada and the United States. 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: Canada and the United States (USA), primary land masses only

Land Mass Covered: 18,982,175.9 sq km
