Space Imaging Releases IKONOS Image of Mogadishu, Somalia

In response to several requests, Space Imaging is releasing IKONOS satellite imagery of Mogadishu, Somalia. Columbia Pictures’ film Black Hawk Down: Leave No Man Behind will be released at theaters nationwide this weekend. These images may provide content and a context that may be useful in reporting on the movie. These satellite images of Mogadishu, Somalia (see links below) were collected on Aug. 15, 2001 by Space Imaging’s IKONOS satellite. The four-meter resolution image shows most of Mogadishu including the international airport, harbor and the soccer stadium. The one-meter resolution satellite image focuses on central Mogadishu including the market, the Olympic Hotel and the area where the two Blackhawk helicopters crashed. A third one-meter resolution image has been annotated to show key areas of interest portrayed in the movie.
