First Images From WorldView-3

On August 13, 2014, DigitalGlobe launched WorldView-3 into orbit.

On August 19, a mere six days after launch, they completed commissioning the satellite bus and opened the door on the main telescope to begin imagery testing on the entire suite of WorldView-3’s 27 super-spectral bands.

We are pleased to share several WorldView-3 image examples from the first image collection taken with the new satellite over Madrid, Spain, to show our customers the potential of this new satellite. Because of the regulatory restrictions, the images can’t yet display the 30 cm native resolution data, so we’re sharing imagery resampled to 40 cm below.

Architecture of ResNet34-UNet model

UNet architecture for semantic segmentation with ResNet34 as encoder or feature extraction part. ResNet34 is used as an encoder or feature extractor in the contracting path and the corresponding symmetric expanding path predicts the dense segmentation output.

Architecture of VGG16-UNet model

Architecture of ResNet34-FCN model

In this model, ResNet34 is used for feature extraction and the FCN operation remains as is. The feature of ResNet architecture is exploited where just like VGG, as the number of filters double, the feature map size gets halved. This gives a similarity to VGG and ResNet architecture while supporting deeper architecture and addressing the issue of vanishing gradients while also being faster. The fully connected layer at the output of ResNet34 is not used and instead converted to fully convolutional layer by means of 1×1 convolution.

Architecture of VGG16-FCN model

In this model, VGG16 is used for feature extraction which also performs the function of an encoder. The fully connected layer of the VGG16 is not used and instead converted to fully convolutional layer by means of 1×1 convolution.
