Description

The RapidEye Level 3A Ortho Tile, both Visual (in natural colour) and Analytic (multispectral), full archive products are available as part of Planet imagery offer.

The RapidEye Ortho Tile product (L3A) is radiometric, sensor and geometrically corrected (by using DEMs with a post spacing of between 30 and 90 metres) and aligned to a cartographic map projection. Ground Control Points (GCPs) are used in the creation of every image and the accuracy of the product will vary from region to region based on available GCPs.

 

Product Components Image File – GeoTIFF file that contains image data and geolocation information

Metadata File – XML format metadata file

Unusable Data Mask (UDM) file – GeoTIFF format
Bands 3-band natural color (blue, green, red) or 5-band multispectral image (blue, green, red, red edge, near-infrared)
Ground Sampling Distance 6.5 m at nadir (average at reference altitude 475 km)
Projection UTM WGS84
Accuracy Depends on the quality of the reference data used (GCPs and DEMs)
