Since the beginning of 2010 a high resolution satellite imagery from the new satellite – WorldView-2 are attainable. It is characterized by recording of the Earth's surface with geometric resolution 2 × 2 m in 8 spectral channels and 0.5 × 0.5 m in panchromatic channel. The new channels were introduced primarily to significantly increase the scope and capacity of interpretation of the image. Thanks to the combination of high spatial resolution with high precision positioning, results a new standard for remote sensing data with a much greater potential than was previously possible. The possibility of daily obtaining images of 1-meter resolution creates favorable conditions for tracking the dynamics of the processes and phenomena occurring on the land surface or in coastal waters. High resolution satellite images of this class are particularly useful for updating databases and other studies of topographic maps on a scale equivalent to at least 1:5k, what makes them useful for many studies for management, monitoring and planning. Inquisitiveness of potential user requires verification of this information and potentially of other features of this unique class of remote sensing data. The results of this preliminary analysis are the subject of this paper.
