OrbView-3 satellite images were collected around the world between 2003 and 2007 by Orbital Imaging Corporation (now GeoEye) at up to one-meter resolution. The OrbView-3 data set includes 180,000 scenes of one meter resolution panchromatic, black and white, and four meter resolution multi-spectral (color and infrared) data, providing high resolution data useful for a wide range of science applications. The spacecraft ceased operation on April 23, 2007 and decayed on March 13, 2011 via a controlled reentry into the broad area Pacific Ocean.
