Satellite Images of Notre Dame Cathedral

by | Apr 24, 2019

European Space Imaging captured an image over Paris on April 17, 2019, with WorldView-2 at 50-centimeter spatial resolution. The image highlights the damage caused by the fire at Notre Dame Cathedral that started April 15.

European Space Imaging also released an image captured with WorldView-2 on Sept. 11, 2018, to be used in comparison to demonstrate the level of damage occurred. The newer image clearly shows the spire and wooden roof completely desecrated, leaving behind blackened charred rubble.
