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.
- Pansharpened: colour image at 1.5 m resolution
- Bundle: 1.5 m panchromatic image and 6 m multispectral image
Geometric 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.
To complement the traditional and fully customised ordering and download of selected Pléiades and SPOT images in a variety of data formats, the user can also request a subscription for the access to OneAtlas Living Library where the entire OneAtlas optical archive is made available in streaming mode and updated on daily basis.
Search (based on parameter or AOI) and View functionalities are accessible via the OneAtlas Living Library portal or via API
Three different subscription packages will be at the availability of users: a limitation to 80,000 tiles (corresponding to 8,000km2), a limitation to 160,000 tiles (16,000 km2), and an all-you-can-eat (unlimited) access. The subscriptions will be open for consumption for one entire year.
All details about the data provision, data access conditions and quota assignment procedure are described into the Terms of Applicability available in Resources section.
