The Commercial Data Purchases (CDP) Imagery Collection contains WorldView-3 imagery and is archived at the USGS Earth Resources Observation & Science Center (EROS). The CDP supports the Commercial Remote Sensing Space Policy (CRSSP) by providing data to qualified Federal users at no cost. See U.S. Federal User Certification form (.pdf).

Commercial vendor licensing may restrict access to imagery, and license restrictions may vary for each individual image. However, users have the option to request license upgrades for imagery not currently licensed for their Federal agency.  Any use of trade, firm, or product names is for descriptive purposes only and does not imply endorsement by the U.S. Government.


DigitalGlobe’s WorldView-3 satellite was launched in August 2014 with enhanced imaging capabilities over previous WorldView satellites. WorldView-3 provides a panchromatic band at 31-centimeter resolution, eight multispectral bands at 1.24-meter resolution, eight shortwave infrared (SWIR) bands at 3.7-meter resolution, and twelve CAVIS (clouds, aerosol, vapor, ice, snow) bands at 30-meter resolution. Average revisit time is less than 1 day with a global collection capacity of 680,000 square kilometers per day. See WorldView-3 for more details.
