Kimberley Wilson, campaign manager at DMCii said, “The UK-DMC2 satellite achieved full coverage of North and South America during 2014; however, this image is of coverage compiled from the best UK-DMC2 data acquired since its launch in 2009.”

The UK-DMC2 satellite carries a multispectral optical instrument with a spatial resolution of 22 m and a wide swath of more than 600 km, allowing continent-level imaging with rapid revisit times.
