The Summer Olympics 2016 are fast approaching and Rio de Janeiro is in its final stage of preparation to welcome an expected number of one million tourists.
At Spaceknow, we analyzed in detail satellite imagery of the very heart of the Rio 2016 Olympic Games – Barra Olympic Park. Located in the southwestern part of the city, the Barra cluster is home to major sports stadiums, International Broadcasting Centre, Main Press Centre, and Olympic and Paralympic Village.
Following sets of satellite images supplied by DigitalGlobe capture construction works in all main parts of the Barra zone between 2012 and 2014. With Spaceknow Analytics you can get an idea of the original state of the site and follow the progress of construction works in their early stages.
