09 Jun 2023
The European Space Agency (ESA) is delighted to announce the availability of the KOMPSAT-1 Coverage of 50 European Cities collection to users as part of the Earthnet Third Party Mission Programme.
KOMPSAT-1, also known as Arirang-1, was a South Korean Earth observation satellite launched on 21 Decmeber 1999. Operating for a remarkable eight years, the satellite ceased operations on 30 December 2007 following a loss of contact.
The Electro-Optical Camera (EOC) onboard KOMPSAT-1 captured panchromatic imagery of the Earth's surface, with a ground sampling distance (GSD) of 6.6 metres. This specific dataset comprises Level 1B PAN imagery at a 6.6-metre GSD, in GeoTIFF format.
To gain access to the data, users are required to register in ESA's TPM dissemination service beforehand. Once registered, the data can be directly downloaded.
