WorldView-3 SWIR Update – 3.7-meter Resolution & Updated Pricing

As promised in our breaking news article last month, here is an extended update on WorldView-3 (WV3) and its short-wave infrared (SWIR) bands. The most important take-away is that WV3 SWIR data is now available at its native resolution of 3.7-meters (m)! That is nearly four times the number of pixels offered at 7.5-m resolution, assuring that your next spectral and/or geological analysis is even more accurate and robust.

Now here are the additional WV3 SWIR changes – including pricing – that you should know about:

  • All archived WV3 SWIR data can be delivered at its native resolution of 3.7-m or at 7.5-m resolution.
  • SWIR tasking (or a new collection) orders will now be available at both 3.7-m and 7.5-m resolution.
  • There is a reduced cost for both 7.5-m SWIR archive and tasking orders – email us at for an updated price list!

If you haven’t checked out our imagery and/or digital elevation model (DEM) price lists recently it might be time to get an update as many items have changed including reduced PlanetScope minimum orders, lower WorldDEM pricing, the addition of several new satellites and so much more!

Email us at for your updated price lists or with any additional questions you might have about this exciting change to WV3 SWIR resolution.
