blue arrow DESCRIPTION

RapidEye is a constellation composed by 5 optical satellites operated by Planet.

The RapidEye Level 3A Ortho Tile, both Visual (in natural colour) and Analytic (multispectral), full archive and new tasking 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 meters) 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 and Format:

  • 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 (nadir): 6.5 m

Projection: UTM WGS84

Accuracy: depends on the quality of the reference data used (GCPs and DEMs)
