Longmont, Colo., Jan. 7, 2013—DigitalGlobe announced the winner of the Top Satellite Image of 2012 contest. After a close race with the media-favored image of Mt.

The image of the Burning Man Festival in Nevada was taken by DigitalGlobe’s WorldView-2 satellite on August 28, 2012. Operating at an altitude of 770 kilometers, WorldView-2 is the first high-resolution 8-band multispectral commercial satellite. Additional information is available on DigitalGlobe’s blog post.
