High Resolution Imagery Collections – WorldView-2 – Q12013 India

In this monthly piece, we give our readers a sense of the high-resolution imagery coverage collected over a specified geography during a three month window. To do this, we pick a high resolution satellite, a defined time period and geography, and 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.
