QuickBird Satellite Imagery 2021

QuickBird satellite imagery was a high-resolution commercial Earth observation satellite, owned by Digital Globe, launched in 2001 and reentered after orbit decay in 2015. QuickBird used Ball Aerospace’s Global Imaging System 2000 (BGIS 2000). The satellite collected panchromatic (black and white) imagery at 61-centimeter resolution and multispectral imagery at 2.44- (at 450 km) to 1.63-meter (at 300 km) resolution, as orbit altitude is lowered during the end of mission life.

Data Access

Moshaver Hamrah Company (MHC) has provided this opportunity for you, to be able to access QuickBird Satellite Imagery by ordering any place in Iran and neighboring countries. For this purpose, it is necessary to prepare a specific box from the study area (In Iran) (KMZ format) and send it to us along with the imagery date. Our experts will contact you as soon as possible.

How To Access Data

Submission of Project Proposals is temporarily suspended until 11 April. This is part of improvements underway for the submission interface. Find out more in this related news .


QuickBird high resolution optical products are available as part of the Maxar Standard Satellite Imagery products from the QuickBird, WorldView-1/-2/-3/-4, and GeoEye-1 satellites. All details about the data provision, data access conditions and quota assignment procedure are described into the Terms of Applicability available in Resources section.

In particular, QuickBird offers archive panchromatic products up to 0.60 m GSD resolution and 4-Bands Multispectral products up to 2.4 m GSD resolution.

4-Bands being an option from:

  • 4-Band Multispectral (BLUE, GREEN, RED, NIR1)
  • 4-Band Pan-sharpened (BLUE, GREEN, RED, NIR1)
  • 4-Band Bundle (PAN, BLUE, GREEN, RED, NIR1)
  • 3-Bands Natural Colour (pan-sharpened BLUE, GREEN, RED)
  • 3-Band Colored Infrared (pan-sharpened GREEN, RED, NIR1)
  • Natural Colour / Coloured Infrared (3-Band pan-sharpened)

Native 30 cm and 50/60 cm resolution products are processed with MAXAR HD Technology to generate respectively the 15 cm HD and 30 cm HD products: the initial special resolution (GSD) is unchanged but the HD technique intelligently increases the number of pixels and improves the visual clarity achieving aesthetically refined imagery with precise edges and well reconstructed details.

 The list of available archived data can be retrieved using the Image Library catalogue.

With proprietary access to PléiadesSPOTVision-1 and DMC Constellation optical satellites as well as the Radar Constellation (consisting of TerraSAR-X, TanDEM-X and PAZ), our extensive portfolio spans the entire geo-information value chain and is unrivalled in the marketplace.

And we are continuously expanding our constellation to deliver even better data solutions. With the upcoming launch of the Pléiades Neo constellation, we will be able to provide our customers with even more coverage and high resolution at 30cm resolution and intra-daily revisit.

Our Airbus Constellation provides decision makers with integrated, sustainable solutions to increase security, optimise mission planning and operations, boost operational performance, improve management of resources and protect our environment.
