Coastal Satellite Imagery

ACEF has acquired a series of satellite remote sensing products from the WorldView 2 satellite. The WorldView 2 sensor provides a total of 8 multispectral bands and a panchromatic band. The coastal band (400-450nm) enables its use in vegetation identification and bathymetric studies. ACEF, in conjunction with the eReefs project, is working on using this data to produce high quality maps of benthic habitats.

WorldView 2 provides very high resolution (0.5m) data. This data for the tiles below can be made available by partnering with ACEF and CSIRO. Please get in touch if you are interested in finding out more. A lower resolution dataset (10m) will be made available for general viewing.
