Recall the launch just last month… well, today DigitalGlobe has rolled out the first images from the WorldView1 satellite.
WorldView-1’s first images include half-meter snapshots from:
Houston, Texas, USA acquired October 2, 2007
Yokohama, Japan acquired October 5, 2007
Addis Ababa, Ethiopia acquired October 5, 2007
Recall WorldView-1, built by Ball Aerospace and Technologies Corporation with the imaging sensor provided by ITT Corporation, is a high-capacity, panchromatic imaging system featuring half-meter resolution imagery. With an average revisit time of 1.7 days, WorldView-1 is capable of collecting up to 750,000 square kilometers (290,000 square miles) per day of half-meter imagery.
