WorldView-3 was successfully launched on August 13, 2014 from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California. WorldView-3 provides 31 cm panchromatic resolution, 1.24 m multispectral resolution, 3.7 m short-wave infrared resolution, and 30 m CAVIS resolution. Recent changes in legislation by the US Department of Commerce have relaxed restrictions on resolution of satellite imagery that can be commercially distributed – Digital Globe is now allowed to sell imagery at the best available resolution.
PCI Geomatics and Digital Globe will be presenting a joint webinar on March 19th, 2015 to demonstrate the value of working with very high resolution, super spectral imagery. The demonstration will include processing of full resolution WorldView-3 imagery within PCI software and provide best practices for working with the new source of high resolution imagery. Specific applications will be demonstrated as part of the live webinar.
PCI Geomatics has implemented support for WorldView-3’s sensor model, which required modifications to Geomatica and GXL. WorldView-3 provides positional information that can be imported to build geometric models for the imagery. Geomatica and GXL have the capability to build precise satellite geometry models to properly position the imagery on the earth’s surface. The models can be further refined through the collection of a few ground control points to create highly accurate orthorectified imagery, Digital Elevation Models (DEMs) and mosaics.
