DESCRIPTION

GEOSAT-2 full archive and new tasking products are available at up to 0.75m resolution as:

  • Pan-sharpened (4 bands, 321 Natural Colours or 432 False Colours): A four-band image, resulting from adding the information of each multispectral band to the panchromatic band. The fusion does not preserves all spectral features of the multispectral bands, so it should not be used for radiometric purposes. Resolution 1m (L1B) or 0.75m (L1C); Bands: All, R-G-B or Ni-R-G
  • Panchromatic: Single-band image coming from the panchromatic sensor. Resolution 1m (L1B) or 0.75m (L1C)
  • Multispectral: Four-band image coming for the multispectral sensor, with band co-registration. Resolution 4m (L1B) or 3m (L1C)
  • Bundle: Panchromatic + Multispectral bands: five-band image containing the panchromatic and multispectral products packaged together, with band co-registration.
  • Stereo Pair: Obtained from two acquisitions of the same target performed from different viewpoints in the same pass by using the agility feature of the platform. It can be provided as a pair of pan-sharpened or panchromatic images.

The image products are delivered in GeoTIFF image format by default. JPEG-2000 format is also available on demand.

Available processing levels are L1B (native) and L1C (ortho):

Product Type Processing Level and Spatial Resolution Spectral Bands
L1B (native) L1C (ortho)
Pan-sharpened 1.0m 0.75m All R, G, B NI, R, G
Pan 1.0m 0.75m Only Pan band
MS 4.0m 3.00m Only MS band
Bundle (PAN+MS) 1.0m (P), 4.0m (MS) 0.75m (P), 3.0m(MS) All

HOW TO ACCESS THIS DATA

The collection is open for research and application development, prototype and test projects to worldwide users but GEOSAT can introduce limitation due to security regulations. Data are available for on demand ordering upon submission of a Service Request subject to evaluation and acceptance by ESA and data owner.

The process usually takes up to two weeks and there are no deadlines for submitting a service request.

For further information about the EO Sign In Service visit TellUS

Should you need support please contact EOHelp

ESA will support as many high-quality and innovative projects as possible within the quota limit available, therefore only a limited amount of products can be allowed to each project.

Availability and restrictions to the use of the data are described in the ESA Third Party Missions (TPM) T&C document and in the Terms of Applicability document

APPLICABLE TERMS & CONDITIONS

Specific restrictions to the use of data may apply for TPMs according to the terms of applicability valid for each mission. Utilisation of this data is subject to ESA's Earth Observation Terms and Conditions
