Maximizing image availability, part 2:
let’s clear the air – DigitalGlobe Atmospheric Compensation (AComp)

All satellite imagery is affected at some level by lightwave scattering from haze, water vapor and particulates in the atmosphere. Every optical satellite in orbit peers at Earth through the same atmosphere, and each and every satellite image collected is impacted differently because atmospheric conditions are constantly changing. Understanding and…
