Overview & HistoryWorldView-2 SpecificationsPricing

WorldView-2 was the most technologically-advanced high-resolution satellite ever launched before it’s twin, WorldView-3, reached orbit. The DigitalGlobe satellite was launched into space on October 8, 2009 from Vandenberg Air Force Base, CA. WorldView-2 collects 46-centimeter (cm) panchromatic and 1.85-meter (m) multispectral imagery.

WorldView-2 features the first 8-band multispectral imaging system, adding a coastal, yellow, red edge and an additional near-infrared red (NIR) band to the traditional four (i.e. blue, green, red and NIR). Positioned 770 kilometers (km) above the planet, WorldView-2 collects up to 785,000 sq km of 8-band imagery every day. No wonder it’s our best seller!
