The WorldView-4 satellite sensor (30cm) was launched on November 11, 2016 at 10:30 a.m. PST. Satellite launch was postponed after forest fires occurred in the region at Vandenberg Air Force Base, California. WorldView-4 will have similar resolution as the WorldView-3 satellite sensor and will acquire 31cm panchromatic and 4-band multispectral at 1.24-meter high resolution satellite imagery. This will offer customers unprecedented, precise views for 2D or 3D mapping, change detection and image analysis.
