SPOTMaps 2.5 is a dataset providing nationwide or regional seamless coverage, orthorectified, derived from colour imagery acquired by SPOT 5. It is available over more than 110 countries, representing a total of more than 95 million km2. The dataset has a resolution of 2.5 metres and it is composed by level 2A data with radiometric correction identical to that of level 1A.
The SPOT 6 and 7 satellites ensure data continuity with the no longer operational SPOT 5 satellite and provide an archive of very high resolution optical acquisition as well as the possibility to task the satellites for new acquisitions.
The ortho-products are automatically generated by the SPOT 6 and 7 ground segment, based on SRTM database or Reference3D when available. The projection available for SPOT 6 and 7 ortho-products is UTM, datum WGS84.
SPOT 6 and 7 modes:
- Panchromatic image at 1.5 m resolution
- Pansharpened colour image at 1.5 m resolution
- Multispectral image in 4 spectral bands at 6 m resolution
- Bundle (1.5 m panchromatic image and 6 m multispectral image)
SPOT 6 and 7 processing levels:
- Primary: The Primary product is the processing level closest to the natural image acquired by the sensor. This product restores perfect collection conditions: the sensor is placed in rectilinear geometry, and the image is clear of all radiometric distortion.
- Standard Ortho: The Ortho product is a georeferenced image in Earth geometry, corrected from acquisition and terrain off-nadir effects.
- Tailored ortho: Aside from the Standard Ortho product, when different specifications are needed, a custom orthorectification, with a more precise 3D model provided by the client or acquired for the purpose, can be provided on demand.
The products are available as part of the Airbus provision from Pleiades and Spot missions. SPOT collection has worldwide coverage: the GeoStore Catalogue can be accessed (self registration requested) to discover and check the data readiness.
