How To Access Data

Project Proposal (Restrained)

  1. Go to the ESA User Services Portal
  2. Register or log in to EO Sign In
  3. After logging in, complete and submit the form with your proposed use of the data
  4. The proposal will be evaluated by ESA, which normally takes between 4 and 6 weeks
  5. Upon successful evaluation, you will receive a confirmation email, which describes the amount of data to be provided, and details of how to order the data.

The collection is open for research and application development projects only to users located in the territory of ESA Member States (including Canada), in the European Commission Member States.

Data are available to order on demand upon submission of a Project Proposal subject to evaluation and acceptance by ESA and the data owner.

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.

The list of available archived data can be retrieved using the Image Library catalogue.

Availability and restrictions to the use of the data are described in the Terms of Applicability document.

If you need help with the proposal form, consult this guide on how to access data requiring a project proposal.

For further information about the EO Sign In Service you can visit TellUs.

Should you need support to prepare your proposal or access the data, please contact EOHelp.


GeoEye-1 high resolution optical products are available as part of the Maxar Standard Satellite Imagery products from the QuickBird, WorldView-1/-2/-3/-4 and GeoEye-1 satellites. All details about the data provision, data access conditions and quota assignment procedure are described into the Terms of Applicability available in Resources section.

In particular, GeoEye-1 offers archive and tasking panchromatic products up to 0.41 m GSD resolution and Multispectral products up to 1.65 m GSD resolution.

Band CombinationData Processing LevelResolutions
Panchromatic and 4-bandsStandard (2A) / View Ready Standard (OR2A)15 cm HD, 30 cm HD, 30 cm, 40 cm, 50/60 cm
View Ready Stereo30 cm, 40 cm, 50/60 cm
Map-Ready (Ortho) 1:12,000 Orthorectified15 cm HD, 30 cm HD, 30 cm, 40 cm, 50/60 cm


The options for 4-Bands are the following:

  • 4-Band Multispectral (BLUE, GREEN, RED, NIR1)
  • 4-Band Pan-sharpened (BLUE, GREEN, RED, NIR1)
  • 4-Band Bundle (PAN, BLUE, GREEN, RED, NIR1)
  • 3-Bands Natural Colour (pan-sharpened BLUE, GREEN, RED)
  • 3-Band Colored Infrared (pan-sharpened GREEN, RED, NIR1).

Native 30 cm and 50/60 cm resolution products are processed with MAXAR HD Technology to generate respectively the 15 cm HD and 30 cm HD products the initial special resolution (GSD) is unchanged but the HD technique increases the number of pixels and improves the visual clarity achieving aesthetically refined imagery with precise edges and well-reconstructed details.
