High-Resolution Imagery Collections – WorldView-2/3 – Sub-Saharan Africa, January to March 2017

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 January 1 to March 31, 2017 over Sub-Saharan Africa. Please note that in many instances, multiple images were collected over the same area which is difficult to portray on this static map.
