High Resolution Imagery Collections – WorldView-2 – October to December 2013, The Middle East

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.

This map shows the areas imaged by WorldView-2 from October 1 to December 31, 2013 over the Middle East. Please note that in many instances, multiple images were collected over the same area which is difficult to portray on this static map.
