Vertical artifacts in high-resolution WorldView-2 and WorldView-3 satellite imagery

Metadata Updated: March 14, 2022

Satellite sensor artifacts can negatively impact the interpretation of satellite data. One such artifact is linear features in imagery which can be caused by a variety of sensor issues and can present as either wide, consistent features called banding, or as narrow, inconsistent features called striping. This study used high-resolution data from DigitalGlobe's WorldView-3 satellite collected at Lake Okeechobee, Florida, on 30 August 2017. Primarily designed as a land sensor, this study investigated the impact of vertical artifacts on both at-sensor radiance and a spectral index for an aquatic target. This dataset is not publicly accessible because: NGA Nextview license agreements prohibit the distribution of original data files from WorldView due to copyright. It can be accessed through the following means: National Geospatial Intelligence Agency contract details prevent distribution of Maxar data.
