    2m Topobathy over Yanaha Island, Japan

    Yanaha Island is an uninhabited isle that lies within the archipelago of Okinawa, Japan. 

    Encompassing white sand beaches and spiring columns of coral that are framed by the turquoise and teal hued waters of the Pacific; Yanaha Island is home to no less than 400 different types of coral and a variety of tropical fish, sea turtles and manta ray.

    This image details a 1 meter resolution Digital Terrain Model combined with 2 meter Satellite. This ready-to-use topographic bathymetry data was created from DigitalGlobe’s very high resolution WorldView imagery, and is perfect for tsunami modelling, disaster & hazard response, hydrology studies and other applications.
