blue arrow 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)

 

The products are available as part of the Planet provision from RapidEye, Skysat and PlanetScope constellations. RapidEye collection has worldwide coverage: the Planet Explorer Catalogue can be accessed (Planet registration requested) to discover and check the data readiness.

All details about the data provision, data access conditions and quota assignment procedure are described into the Terms of Applicability available in Resources section.

blue arrow HOW TO ACCESS THIS DATA

The collection is open for research and application development, prototype and test projects to users located in the territory of ESA Member States (including Canada), in the European Commission Member States and in China as part of the Dragon cooperation programme but Planet can introduce limitations due to security regulations.

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

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

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

blue arrow 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
