New version of SPOT-5 Take 5 L2A dataset

13 May 2016

In 2015 ESA and CNES jointly conducted a dedicated acquisition campaign with the SPOT-5 satellite. Before its final de-orbiting, the spacecraft was manoeuvred to a lower orbit to simulate the 5 days revisit of Sentinel-2. The imagery over all selected acquisition sites is freely available to the worldwide user community on the SPOT-5 Take 5 site.

The SPOT-5 (Take 5) project recently released a new version of all SPOT-5 (Take 5) L2A data to account for several small issues encountered during the first reprocessing.
