Imagery & Data Spot
constellation of SPOT satellites, operated by Astrium GEO-Information Services, offers unsurpassed acquisition
and revisit capacity to bring you
imagery from anywhere in the
world, every day. This constellation provides highly accurate imagery ranging in resolution from 2.5 meters to 20 meters.
SPOT images cover a 60 km x 60 km swath enabling acquisition of very large areas with very few images. The HRS instrument on SPOT
5 is dedicated to stereoviewing for relief mapping. It has been used to create the Reference3D geographic reference system, which is unrivaled in the world for its accuracy, coverage, completeness, uniformity and unlimited source of ground control points.
The system has been operational since 1986 when
SPOT 1 was launched. SPOT 2 was placed in orbit
in January 1990, followed by SPOT 3 in September
1993, SPOT 4 in March 1998 and SPOT 5 in May
2002. Over the last 25 years, the SPOT constellation has covered the world many, many times building an archive of over 25 million images equaling over 100 billion square kilometers.
The SPOT 6 Earth observation satellite, built by Astrium, was successfully launched September 9, 2012. SPOT 6 (1.5m) joins Pléiades 1A (50 cm), launched December 17, 2011 and Pléiades 1B (50 cm), launched December 2, 2012 in orbit and forms, with SPOT 7 (1.5m), proposed to launch in 2014, a coherent and smart optical constellation providing images distributed by Astrium Services
