Photographic Evaluation Report

High resolution imagery is available from three sources. Declassified CORONA imagery includes coverage from 10 February 1969. Commercially available Russian 2-meter resolution KVR-1000 imagery is available via the SPIN-2 service on TerraServer. As of 01 May 2000 archival Space Imaging IKONOS 1-meter imagery available on the CARTERRA™ Archive includes at least 28 scenes of the general Guangzhou area, acquired between 03 February 2000 and 04 April 2000. Of these scenes, however, 25 have heavy cloud cover in excess of the standard 20% threshold. There is evidently no coverage of Guangzhou East Airfield.
