ESA is pleased to announce that the access to IKONOS data is now easier than ever. The collection (Geo Ortho Kit) is now available through the Static Map for immediate HTTP download, after fast registration. Data is made available free of charge.

The static map offers the opportunity to browse, directly on a map, all of the IKONOS data available in the ESA archive. Once a scene is selected, the download is immediate for users who have been authorised after fast registration.

The IKONOS collection is an archive of IKONOS Geo Ortho Kit data previously requested through the TPM scheme. The resolution is nominally 0.82 m (panchromatic mode) or 3.28 m (multispectral mode).

Further information about the IKONOS mission can be found here.

Details about the IKONOS data collection are available in the Product availability section.
