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. The picture above shows a heat map of Very High Resolution (VHR) image acquisitions in the year 2016. The “warmer” (red/yellow) the spot the higher […]
