  2. Code WV2
  3. Application World-View 2 is the first satellite launched with high resolution multispectral bands. It is the first ever satellite to capture in the eight band regio at very high resolution. It is ideal for specific feature extraction for example building footprints. Furthermore, it can also be used for land use and land cover mapping and change detection to name a few.
