Ideal for large-scale mapping projects, GeoEye-1 provides highly detailed imagery at .46-meter panchromatic and 1.84-meter multispectral resolutions. It can geolocate features to less than 5m, offers stereoscopic collection on a single pass, and can revisit any point on Earth once every three days.
The GeoEye-1 satellite is equipped with some of the most advanced technology ever used in a commercial remote sensing system. The satellite collects images at .46-meter panchromatic (black-and-white) and 1.84-meter multispectral resolution. The satellite can collect up to 500,000 square kilometers of pansharpened multispectral imagery per day. This capability is ideal for large-scale mapping projects. GeoEye-1 can revisit any point on Earth once every three days or sooner.
- Provides highly detailed imagery for
precise map creation, change detection, and in-depth image analysis
- Geolocate features to less than 5 m to
create maps in remote areas, maximizing the utility of available resources
- Collects, stores, and downlink a greater supply of frequently updated
global imagery products than competitive systems
- Stereoscopic collection on a single pass ensure images
