    Exploring the benefits of SWIR satellite imagery

    Besides offering 30 centimeter resolution panchromatic and eight-band visible and near-infrared (VNIR) imagery, WorldView-3 collects shortwave infrared (SWIR) imagery in eight-bands. This allows the satellite to sense the VNIR spectrum as well as expand deeper into the infrared spectrum than any other commercial imaging satellite, providing rich data for precisely identifying and characterizing manmade and natural materials. WorldView-3's eight SWIR bands span the spectrum's three atmospheric transmittance imaging windows to capture unique information for materials identification, wildfire response, food security, mining/geology, and other applications.
