SPOT-6 SATELLITE IMAGERY
SPOT-6 has the capacity to obtain panchromatic imagery and multi-spectral (R, G, B & NIR) at a Ground Sampling Distance (GSD) of 1.5m. Data from this satellite has been used for a multitude of applications from civil and military mapping to agricultural and land management.
It operates on the same satellite orbit as imagery satellite SPOT-7, working in conjunction to provide a high temporal resolution (1 day revisit) which increases the opportunity to obtain a cloud-free image. Imagery satellite SPOT-6 is said to continue its mission until 2022, offering long-term opportunities for imagery well into the future.
