    EOC is the primary payload for KOMPSAT-1. It has a cartography mission to provide images for the production of scale maps, including digital elevation models, from a remote earth view in the KOMPSAT orbit. EOC collects panchromatic imagery with a ground sample distance (GSD) of 6.6 m and swath width of 17 km at nadir through the visible spectral band of 510 nm ~ 730 nm. EOC scans the ground track of 800 km per orbit by push-broom and body pointing method.

    ESA provide a sample dataset only for European cities. The data are available as TIF images and correspond to a level 1B processing, e.g. no orthorectification or radiometric calibration.
