Commercial vs. non-commercial satellite imagery? PlanetObserver analyses the big trends in the satellite imagery market and details its unique offering of global imagery basemap.
In an article just published in May 2016 edition of SatMagazine, PlanetObserver details today’s major trends in the satellite imagery market, both for commercial data and raw non-commercial imagery.
In the market for commercial imagery, there is a strong trend towards very high resolution data and new entrants offering imagery collected by micro-satellites.
In the non-commercial imagery market, a new European offering has emerged in addition to Landsat data made available by the NASA for decades. The new European satellite Sentinel-2 provides 10-meter imagery since end 2015.
PlanetObserver takes advantage of both Landsat 8 and Sentinel-2 imagery to enrich its global imagery mosaic PlanetSAT 15. Initially processed at 15-meter resolution, this unique global imagery basemap will be offered soon at 10-meter resolution and be named PlanetSAT 10.
