Spot Image is the worldwide distributor of geographic information products and services derived from the Spot Earth observation satellites, including the Vegetation instrument flown on SPOT 4 and 5.
Spot Image also distributes complementary optical and radar data acquired by other satellites offering low to very high resolution images.
Spot Image was appointed by CNES as sole commercial operator of the SPOT satellites, the first of which was placed in orbit in 1986.
Spot Image acquires the SPOT data through a receiving station at its premises In Toulouse and via a network of partner stations around the world.
Earth observation systems offer more or less broad coverage and
ever-finer detail, but their revisit frequency is still limited for
surveillance purposes. FORMOSAT-2, the first and only high-resolution satellite with a daily revisit capability, overcomes this obstacle to provide a new response to your surveillance needs.
Spot Image, as KOMPSAT-2 (KOrean MultiPurpose SATellite) - the very-high-resolution satellite belonging to the Korean Aerospace Research Institute (KARI) - imagery distributor, is ready to offer you easier and wider access to a unique palette of data products
Advances in technology have led to smaller, cheaper equipment, bringing
the purchase of a receiving station within reach of private companies,
research centres or government organizations.
A SPOT DEM is a digital elevation model produced by automatic correlation of stereopairs acquired by the HRS instrument on SPOT 5.
SPOT DEM Precision is a gridded file with step sizes of 1 second of arc (30 m on the equator, E/W dimensions vary according to the latitude).
Resampling to 20 m available.
