Features and Benefits

  • SPOT 6 and SPOT 7 provide high-resolution optical imaging data, enabling detailed observations of Earth's surface. The panchromatic mode offers a resolution of 1.5-6m, capturing fine details, while the multispectral mode provides a resolution of 6-20m, offering valuable information for land cover classification and change detection.
  • SPOT 6 and SPOT 7 have a wide swath width of 60 km, allowing for large-area coverage in a single pass. This is beneficial for applications such as regional mapping, disaster assessment, and land use planning.
  • SPOT 6 and SPOT 7 offer multispectral data with different spectral bands, allowing for the analysis of vegetation, water bodies, and land surface features. This facilitates applications such as agriculture monitoring, forestry assessment, and urban planning.
  • SPOT 6 and SPOT 7 have stereo imaging capabilities, capturing images from different angles to generate 3D models of the Earth's surface. This feature supports precise topographic mapping, terrain analysis, and urban modelling.
