Munich, 23.07.2014 – European Space Imaging can now process 40 cm imagery from WorldView satellites at their local Direct Access Facility (DAF) based near Munich. Imagery at 40 cm is available from archive data or for new tasking orders from the WorldView constellation.
The above image of London illustrates the benefits of the higher resolution imagery.
“As the pixels are smaller, an image at 40 cm is clearly smoother and with more visible information. The image exposes more detail which makes it easier to differentiate between objects. Also color variation is better defined.” says our Product Order Manger, Tine Flingelli, after running tests on this near to nadir image.
According to DigitalGlobe what users can expect from smaller pixel resolution is an “ability to resolve smaller features, see greater textures, extract features more accurately, have better photo interpretation, and enjoy a simply clearer picture”.
Other benefits of 40 cm include:
- easier to see non-linear features, like circles and ground markings
- improved image analysis for asset tracking and financial analysis or urban planning;
- shows finer detail to allow for greater feature extraction
