Welcome to the SPOT Information Area

ESA is offering free of charge for scientific research and application development access to the following SPOT collections:

  • SPOT 1-7 ESA archive collections (online access, fast registration)
  • SPOT 6-7 full archive & Tasking, all production levels single ,stereo or tri-stereo (on demand, project proposal)
  • SPOT 1-5 full archive, all production levels (on demand, project proposal)
  • SPOTMaps 2.5m complete dataset (on demand, project proposal)

Except for the SPOT1-7 ESA archive collections (for which online access is granted), ESA will support as many high-quality and innovative projects as possible within the quota limit available, therefore only a limited amount of products can be made available to each project.

Availability and restrictions to the use of the above data is described in the ESA TPM T&C and in the Terms of applicability document linked below.

Additional information:

Since 1986, SPOT mission provides high resolution optical satellite imagery in Panchromatic and Multispectral bands.The HRV(IR) sensor onboard SPOT 1-4 provides data at 10 m spatial resolution Panchromatic mode (-1 band) and 20 m (Multispectral mode -3 or 4 bands). The HRG sensor on board of SPOT-5 provides spatial resolution of the imagery to < 3 m in the panchromatic band and to 10 m in the multispectral mode (3 bands). The SWIR band imagery remains at 20 m. The NAOMI sensor on board of SPOT 6&7 provides data up to 1.5 m spatial resolution Panchromatic and Multispectral (4 bands).The swath is of about 60 km.

The list of available data can be retrieved using the Geostore catalogue
