SPOT Satellite Imagery

divider

SPOT imagery offers an optimum combination of resolution and coverage. A single SPOT scene covers a footprint of 3,600 km² at resolutions of 20 m to 2.5 m, with a location accuracy up to 10 m. Such precise and synoptic coverage is ideal for applications at regional and local scales from 1:100,000 to 1:10,000. The SPOT satellites have built up a global archive of millions of images since 1986. This archive is a vast storehouse of recent and historical data for multi-date analysis.

The SPOT satellites can also be tasked to meet your specific time and place requirements. Spot Image’s programming service ensures your needs are effectively addressed at every step, from requirements analysis and satellite tasking proposals through to image validation and regular assessment of attempted image acquisitions.
