RapidEye's level 1B product is the RapidEye Basic Product. Level 1B imagery from the constellation of the five RapidEye satellies is radiometric and sensor corrected, providing imagery as seen from the spacecraft without correction for any geometric distortions inherent in the imaging process, and is not mapped to a cartographic projection. The imagery data is accompanied by all spacecraft telemetry necessary for the processing of the data into a geo-corrected form.

level 3A product is the RapidEye Ortho Product. Level 3A imagery from
the constellation of the five RapidEye satellies offers the highest level of processing available from RapidEye. Radiometric, sensor and geometric corrections have been applied to the data. These have been rectified using a DTED Level 1 SRTM DEM or better, and with appropriate ground control, can meet an accuracy of 6m 1-sigma (12.7m CE90). The highest accuracy that can be achieved by these products meet 1:25,000 NMAS standards.
