China’s Gaofen-1 High-resolution Satellite Images Released

The spatial resolution of this earth observation and imaging satellite combines a 2 m resolution panchromatic and 8 m resolution multispectral image with a 60 km width and a 16 m resolution and 800 km wide imaging capacity. This is the greatest width of any  satellite observations of similar width, significantly improved observational capabilities for large-scale surface observation and environmental monitoring.

One image is high in this group reflect the natural geographical landscape features as the theme, the main choice of 8 m and 16 m resolution multispectral images to international expertise in the field of remote sensing. The commonly used standard false color composite, which uses near-infrared bands, green band and the red band corresponding to red, green, and blue channels. Standard false color remote sensing images, can better distinguish the characteristics of different objects, interpreting feature types; but the image of the image with ordinary camera there are some obvious color difference. For example, on a standard false-color remote sensing image, lush vegetation display bright red, clear body of water appear as dark blue, bare soil appear as dark gray and so on.

This set of images has been provided by the Engineering Center and Institute of Remote Sensing and Digital Earth Institute SASTIND.
