The 4-Bands includes various options such as Multispectral (separate channel for Blue, Green, Red, NIR1), Pan-sharpened (Blue, Green, Red, NIR1), Bundle (separate bands for PAN, Blue, Green, Red, NIR1), Natural Colour (pan-sharpened Blue, Green, Red), Coloured Infrared (pan-sharpened Green, Red, NIR). The 8-Bands being an option from Multispectral (COASTAL, Blue, Green, Yellow, Red, Red EDGE, NIR1, NIR2) and Bundle (PAN, COASTAL, Blue, Green, Yellow, Red, Red EDGE, NIR1, NIR2).

The processing levels are:

  • Standard (2A): normalised for topographic relief
  • View Ready Standard: ready for orthorectification (RPB files embedded)
  • View Ready Stereo: collected in-track for stereo viewing and manipulation (not available for SWIR)
  • Map Scale (Ortho) 1:12,000 Orthorectified: additional processing unnecessary

Spatial coverage: Check the spatial coverage of the collection on a map available on the Third Party Missions Dissemination Service.
