Improved Analytics - Higher Resolution SWIR

See beyond what’s visible to the naked eye with short-wave infrared (SWIR) imagery. The WorldView-3 satellite's SWIR sensor goes deeper into the infrared spectrum to help remote sensing experts unlock critical information through advanced analytic capabilities. Eight bands of short-wave infrared imagery previously only available at 7.5m pixel resolution, now available at 3.7m resolution, create rich data for categorizing man-made and natural material, penetrating smoke, detecting fire, mapping minerals and more.

For Geoimage clients in exploration, this improves the Geoimage WorldView-3 Spectral Suite. The high resolution pixel allows for less ‘mixing’ and a more defined signature - helping clients narrow down likely ore bodies and areas of interest.

There are a number of industries that would benefit from using SWIR data, particularly those businesses that would benefit from object identifications or objective analysis. For example: 

• Farmers looking to increase yields whilst decreasing costs and minimising the environmental impact with precision agriculture and farming practices.

• Insurance companies and loss adjusters who need to identify, detect or verify the existence or condition of assets.

• Local governments can utilise SWIR in identifying different land cover types and for emergency management planning.
