Overview & HistoryWorldView-3 SpecificationsPricing

WorldView-3 is the younger, more sophisticated ‘satellite sister’ of DigitalGlobe’s WorldView-2. Launched into orbit from Vandenberg Air Force Base, California on August 13, 2014, WorldView-3 is now the world’s most technologically advanced high-resolution satellite. WorldView-3 collects 31-centimeter (cm) panchromatic, 1.24-meter (m) multispectral, 3.7-m shortwave infrared (SWIR) and 30-m CAVIS imagery. Due to US government regulations, SWIR data is currently only provided at 7.5-m resolution. At a maximum 31-cm resolution, this imagery will rival the clarity of 20 to 25-cm aerial data given its superior optical and production systems.

Not only is WorldView-3 the highest resolution satellite ever launched, it features 29 spectral bands of remotely sensed data which is nearly 6 times more than any sensor – other than WorldView-2’s 9 bands that is. Boldly going where no satellite has gone before, WorldView-3 offers a high resolution panchromatic band and 8 multispectral bands which are ideal for visual analysis, bathymetric studies and plant health assessments; 8 short-wave infrared bands which are ideal for mineral and hydrocarbon exploration; and 12 CAVIS bands which are ideal for improved atmospheric corrections.

If your project demands the highest resolution imagery available and/or requires spectral analysis, then WorldView-3 should be your first choice. And with an archive that grows by nearly 680,000 square kilometers (sq km) per day, we are sure to have the imagery you need!
