What is the band ordering for WorldView-2 imagery?

WorldView-2 has the following 8 bands:
– Coastal Band
– Blue
– Green
– Yellow
– Red
– Red Edge
– Near Infrared 1
– Near Infrared 2

Therefore, if you want a true color composite, you would need band 5 (red), 3 (green), and 2 (blue).
For a near-IR false color, you need band 7 (near-IR 1), band 5 (red), and 3 (green)
