Marchetto noted the WorldView 4 satellite will work to provide pictures and information on events worldwide in an effort to help government officials, disaster relief personnel and city planners make decisions.

DigitalGlobe said the image was captured on Nov. 26 and shows the Yoyogi National Gymnasium in Tokyo, Japan, that will host the 2020 Olympic Games.
