Spot online archive for ESA Category-1 users

22 May 2007

ESA has opened an online archive containing more than 11,000 images from the French Space Agency's (CNES) Spot 1, 2, 3 and 4 satellites to allow Category-1 users easy online access to a large variety of datasets focusing over Europe and Africa.

The accessible data of the new online archive are from Spot's High Resolution Visible and Near-Infrared (HRVIR) instruments, which have a ground resolution of 10 metres in black and white and 20 metres in colour. The processing level is Level 1A (radiometric correction).

Visit the SPOT area on the Third Party Missions page of the EOPI (Earth Observation Principal Investigator) portal to check the "Terms of Applicability for the SPOT online archive" and to submit a request for such data.
