I am having trouble finding which satellite took the images I have. Most are from digital globe.

I read through the metadata and the .imd file. I found date and time but not the name of the satellite. Where can I find this information?

According to https://www.digitalglobe.com/sites/default/files/ISD_External.pdf you should have a field called satellite with a mnemonic like:

“QB02”, “WV01”, “WV02”, “WV03”, “GE01”, “Aerial”

Which I assume correspond to the satellites operated by DigitalGlobe:

QuickBird, WorldView 1/2/3, GeoEye-1, IKONOS
