Most of the informations on WorldView images are related to the second and third version of the satellite. I own a WorldView-1 image (the black and white one) and I really need to find the reflectance values of the image pixels.

Is it possible even with single band (B/W) images?

Correcting WorldView-1 is the same as correcting WorldView-2 & -3. The format of the metadata file is the same, so you can find the information where it always can be found (the metadata IMD file).

Combine the information in the metadata file with this guide on how to calibrate WorldView-2 while substituting all mentions of WorldView-2 with WorldView-1.
