Geoimage is delighted to join DigitalGlobe for the launch of WorldView-4 (WV-4), the newest high-resolution, highly accurate commercial satellite to join the world’s leading constellation.
The scheduled launch date is this Friday, 16 September* at the Vandenberg Air Force Base, California, United States.
Geoimage’s Geospatial processing team is looking forward to the enhanced capability that comes with the WV-4 launch.
“At Geoimage, we have seen 30cm data and 50cm digital elevation models (DEMS) to be a real game changer since the launch of WorldView-3 satellite,” said Sylvia Michael, Geospatial Processing & Technical Solutions Manager.
“Now with the launch of WV-4, it will allow twice the amount of capture at 30cm Resolution, and therefore double the access to 50cm DEMs (With WV-3 and WV-4).
“This means quicker captures, more coverage and unmatched quality in high resolution satellite data,” Ms Michael said.
The launch will be attended by Mark Edwards, General Manager, and Tony Evans, Director who are among the privileged few from companies, dignitaries and government agencies around the globe invited to the launch.
“Geoimage has a long history partnering with DigitalGlobe to access their high resolution imagery to assist our clients across Mining, Agricultural, Engineering, Environmental and other real world applications,” Mr Edwards said.
“Our Geospatial processing specialists are committed to translating our innovation and new spatial technologies into solutions that deliver greater efficiency, lower costs and improved outcomes for clients”.
The WV-4 joins DigitalGlobe’s constellation of WorldView 1, 2, 3, & 4, GeoEye-1 and QuickBird2 satellites.

Sylvia Michael awarded 2016 Professional of the Year
Sylvia Michael, Geospatial Processing & Technical Solutions Manager at Geoimage, has been recognised as 2016 Professional of the Year at the SSSI / SIBA Queensland Spatial Excellence Awards gala on September 2nd.
The award celebrates the outstanding achievements of top individuals working in the spatial industries, whose professional achievements exemplify the highest standards of excellence and ethical conduct.
Sylvia was nominated by colleague, Mr Peter Kinne from DigitalGlobe, and acknowledged in citation from staff, former employees and peers. In Peter’s submission, Sylvia is quoted as being “one of the brightest minds in Australia’s geospatial sciences industry”, having worked in the industry since commercial satellite imagery first came to market.
Geoimage General Manager, Mark Edwards, described Sylvia as an exceptional individual with unrivaled ability and passion in her work for the spatial sciences.
“Possible of foremost significance is that Sylvia’s dedication is not about self-gratification, but rather a genuine pursuit of advancing our industry, achieving exceptional outcomes, and passion for the spatial sciences,” Mark said.
Another notable reference was received from Professor Stuart Phinn, from University of Queensland, who said: “A large number of us have successful, agencies, institutions and careers because of the work Sylvia has supported. Without this input Australia’s Earth Observation capability would not be where it is today”.
Geoimage was also acknowledged in award categories:
- Finalist: Innovation and Commercialisation Award for Geoimage's Shortwave Infrared (SWIR) Wavelengths Solutions.
- Finalist: Environment and Sustainability Award for Classification of Mangrove Species case study.
The team at Geoimage would like to congratulate the award winners and finalists for all categories, details on SIBA's website.
