European Space Imaging Starts Commercial Distribution of WorldView-4 Satellite Imagery in Europe

A new ground station and a unique 30 cm satellite constellation enable unprecedented capabilities

European Space Imaging announced today that the company has started operations of its new ground station with access to the entire satellite fleet of its WorldView Global Alliance partner DigitalGlobe. The Munich-based company is now in a unique position to directly task five very high resolution satellites (GeoEye-1, WorldView-1, WorldView-2, WorldView-3 and WorldView-4). This speeds up the whole process of planning, collection, data downlink and delivery and allows European Space Imaging to quickly deliver satellite imagery products to WorldView Global Alliance customers in Europe, North Africa, CIS countries and the Middle East.  

WorldView-4, the latest addition to the DigitalGlobe satellite fleet, joins WorldView-3 as the second commercial 30 cm optical sensor in a 617 km orbit. Both most technologically advanced satellites offer true 30 cm panchromatic, combined with four 1.24 m multispectral resolution and an accuracy of 4 m CE90 at nadir. These characteristics make WorldView-4 and WorldView-3 the perfect tandem for collecting large areas of 30 cm data very rapidly.
“The capabilities of our new ground station and the direct access to the entire DigitalGlobe satellite fleet start a new era in the availability of highest resolution imagery in Europe. It’s a major milestone especially in the 30 cm resolution class”, says Adrian Zevenbergen, Managing Director of European Space Imaging. “In 2017, we plan to collect more than two times the entire European land mass with the 30 cm satellite constellation alone.”

European Space Imaging has already started the supply of 30 cm WorldView-3 and WorldView-4 satellite imagery to its European key programs and the WorldView Global Alliance channel partners.
