This imagery is from Digital Globe’s WorldView-2 satellite taken from multiple images acquired in 2013 and 2014. The images are almost 45GB in size and have been pan-sharpened (combined panchromatic and multispectral images) for visual clarity and orthorectified for terrain corrected geographic precision. Additionally, the images have been contrast stretched using a custom stretch and processed into a Tiled Map Service (TMS) for performance.
