This month, we look at the global collection of commercial optical and radar imagery collected by satellite image suppliers during the last year in order to pick out interesting patterns and insights.
With the rise of high resolution satellites, it is becoming increasingly possible to use remote sensing in the field of conservation. High resolution imagery can be used to track deforestation, habitat change, illegal activities, and wildlife population change.
This month, we look at the distribution of very high resolution (VHR) optical imagery collected by image suppliers during the last year, in order to pick out interesting patterns and insights.

An important task for Geocento in acting as an independent provider of satellite imagery has been in helping users to navigate some of the complexities of ordering imagery.
By far the majority of users of Geocento’s EarthImages platform search for optical imagery. Very few consider using radar imagery. Given its undoubted advantages in terms of being able to see the Earth’s surface through cloud, why is it not used more?
The world continues to get sharper in focus as a number of suppliers move closer towards offering imaging capabilities in the range 0.25-0.5m.
The latest DigitalGlobe satellite, WorldView-4, is due to be launched in less than two weeks’ time and enhance their capacity to collect the world’s highest resolution commercial satellite imagery.
