Maxar Satellite Imagery

GeoWGS84® offers images from the entire Maxar satellite collection.  The Maxar satellite archive library is one of the most extensive high resolution satellite archives available.  This satellite archive can easily be researched and images ordered through the GeoWGS84® Data/Services store.  The satellite data available is from 1 m down to 30 cm in resolution.  In addition to ordering archive data, you can also order custom tasking from the Maxar satellites down to 30 cm in resolution.  GeoWGS84® also offers custom ortho mosaic services for the Maxar satellite images as well as custom DTM generation from the stereo satellite images.  GeoWGS84® can task any of the satellite options to fulfill your project needs.

QuickBird Satellite Imagery

Maxar's retired QuickBird satellite is no longer collecting imagery but continues to offer sub-meter resolution imagery with high geolocational accuracy through the imagery archive. With global collection of panchromatic and multispectral imagery, QuickBird imagery supports a wide range of geospatial applications.

IKONOS Satellite Imagery
IKONOS Satellite Imagery

The IKONOS satellite is the world’s  first commercial satellite to collect panchromatic (black-and-white) images with .80 meter resolution and multispectral (4-band) imagery with 3.2-meter resolution. Imagery from the panchromatic and multispectral sensors can be merged to create .80 meter color imagery (pan-sharpened). IKONOS imagery is being used for national security, military mapping, air and marine transportation, and by regional and local governments. From a 423-mile-high orbit, IKONOS had a revisit time of once every three days and downlinks directly to more than a dozen ground stations around the globe.

GeoEye-1 Satellite Imagery

The GeoEye-1 satellite is equipped with some of the most advanced technology ever used in a commercial remote sensing system. The satellite collects images at .46-meter panchromatic (black-and-white) and 1.84-meter multispectral resolution. The satellite can collect up to 500,000 square kilometers of pan- sharpened multispectral imagery per day. This capability is ideal for large-scale mapping projects. GeoEye-1 can revisit any point on Earth once every three days or sooner.

WorldView-1 Satellite Imagery

WorldView-1, launched September 2007, is the first of our next-generation satellites—the most agile satellites ever flown commercially. The high-capacity, panchromatic imaging system features half-meter resolution imagery. Operating at an altitude of 496 km, WorldView-1 has an average revisit time of 1.7 days and is capable of collecting over one million sq km per day of half-meter imagery. The satellite is also equipped with state-of-the-art geolocation accuracy capabilities and exhibits stunning agility with rapid targeting and efficient in-track stereo collection. WorldView-1 resides in a descending node of 1:30pm.

WorldView-4 Satellite Imagery

WorldView-4 offers multispectral, high-resolution commercial satellite imagery from the Maxar imagery archive. WorldView-4 is retired from the Maxar constellation, but it provides archive imagery at 31 cm panchromatic resolution and 1.23 meter multispectral resolution.


WorldView-3 Satellite Imagery
WorldView-3 Satellite Imagery

WorldView-3 was the first multi-payload, super-spectral, high-resolution satellite offered to the public commercially. Orbiting at an altitude of 617 km; the WorldView-3 commercial satellite provides 31 cm panchromatic resolution, 1.24 meter multispectral resolution, 3.7 meter short-wave infrared resolution, and 30 m CAVIS resolution. WorldView-3’s revisit time averages to less than one day. The WV3 satellite is capable of collecting up to 680,000 sq km per day. The WorldView-3 satellite greatly enhanced Maxar‘s collection capacity to offer more rapid and reliable collections to its commercial and government clients.

WorldView-2 Satellite Imagery

WorldView-2, launched October 2009, is the  first high-resolution 8-band multispectral commercial satellite. Operating at an altitude of 770 km, WorldView-2 provides 46 cm panchromatic resolution and 1.85 meter multispectral resolution. WorldView-2 has an average revisit time of 1.1 days and is capable of collecting up to 1 million sq km of 8-band imagery per day, greatly enhancing Maxar’s multispectral collection capacity for more rapid and reliable collection. WorldView-2 substantially expands imagery product offerings to all Maxar customers.
