Aug. 27, 2002 – To commemorate the one-year anniversary of the September 11 terrorist attacks against the United States, Space Imaging has offered, free to the media, a digital archive of pre- and post-attack satellite images of the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. The six images of the World Trade Center and six images of the Pentagon document the year as seen through the lens of the IKONOS imaging satellite.
The archive can be found at www.spaceimaging.com. All images are 300 dpi resolutions and are free to use for print, broadcast and Internet-based media, provided that photo credit to “Space Imaging” is given for each and every use.
Some of the images were used extensively by media in last year’s coverage of the attacks, including the dramatic aftermath photos of the World Trade Center and Pentagon taken by the IKONOS satellite on September 12, 2001. They are being offered again as supplemental material to any media covering the September 11 one-year anniversary. The archive contains images taken throughout the year, including recent satellite images of the reconstruction of the Pentagon and Ground Zero reclamation.
