    Pleiades full archive and tasking

    The Pléiades twins (1A and 1B) deliver very high-resolution optical data (up to 0.5m resolution Pancromatic and Colour and 2 m Multispectral) and offer a daily revisit capability to any point on the globe. The swath width is of about 20 km (footprint at nadir). The ortho-products are automatically generated by the Pleiades ground segment, based on SRTM or Reference3D database. The projection available for Pleiades ortho-products is UTM, datum WGS84. Bands combinations:: Pansharpened: colour image at 0.5 m resolution Bundle: (0.5m panchromatic image + 2 m multispectral image) 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.

    Pleiades ESA archive

    The Pleiades ESA archive is a dataset of Pleiades-1A and 1B products that ESA collected over the years. The dataset regularly grows as ESA collects new Pleiades products. Pleiades Primary and Ortho products can be available in the following modes: Panchromatic image at 0.5 m resolution Pansharpened colour image at 0.5 m resolution Multispectral image in 4 spectral bands at 2 m resolution Bundle (0.5 m panchromatic image + 2 m multispectral image) Spatial coverage: Check the spatial coverage of the collection on a map available on the Third Party Missions Dissemination Service.
