    RapidEye is a constellation composed of five optical satellites operated by Planet.

    The RapidEye Level 3A Ortho Tile, both Visual (in natural colour) and Analytic (multispectral), full archive and new tasking products are available as part of Planet's imagery offer.

    The RapidEye Ortho Tile product (L3A) is radiometric, sensor and geometrically corrected (by using DEMs with a post spacing of between 30 and 90 metres) and aligned to a cartographic map projection. Ground Control Points (GCPs) are used in the creation of every image and the accuracy of the product will vary from region to region based on available GCPs.
