I am looking to correct worldview 3 data to (hopefully) bottom of atmosphere/ground reflectance values and I came across the Apparent Reflectance function but it says it only supports WV1 and WV2. Is WV3 similar enough to WV2 that it should also work? If not is there another way around this? 

Thanks!

Hello Emma. No, ArcGIS does not support Apparent Reflectance calibration of WorldView-3 data, which is quite different than WV-2. DigitalGlobe provides data corrected to surface reflectance, which is the best option. If you have existing uncorrected WV-3 data, I suggest contacting DigitalGlobe for advice.
