Port Moresby from Space: new 50cm satellite imagery available

July 05, 2011 -- The GeoEye-1 satellite has recently imaged the Port Moresby region over the last few months and obtained some remarkable, cloud free datasets. “Given the economic activity in this region and elsewhere in New Guinea, the interest in current high resolution, satellite imagery has been growing,” says Dr Gail Kelly – AAM Satellite and Aerial Project Delivery Coordinator.

High resolution, 50cm image datasets are generated through the integration of the panchromatic and multispectral information collected by the GeoEye-1 satellite. GeoEye satellites are collecting data from an orbit approximately 680km above the earth whilst circling the earth 15 times a day.

“The speed of GeoEye satellite is best appreciated if you consider the following scenario: in the 90 minutes it takes many of you to wake up, have breakfast and get to your desk in the office, the GeoEye-1 Satellite has orbited the entire earth!,” says Kelly.

The full library of existing archive data can be discovered online. Image overviews (such as the one shown above) are available from the publicly available, archive search tool.

Interactive samples of imagery and other sensor information can be found on our GeoEye webpage:
