High resolution, 50cm image datasets are generated through the integration of the panchromatic and multispectral information collected by the GeoEye-1 satellite. GeoEye satellites are collecting data from an orbit approximately 680km above the earth whilst circling the earth 15 times a day.
“The speed of GeoEye satellite is best appreciated if you consider the following scenario: ..in the 90 minutes it takes many of you to wake up, have breakfast and get to your desk in the office, the GeoEye-1 Satellite has orbited the entire earth!,” says Kelly.
The full library of existing archive data can be discovered online. Image overviews (such as the one shown above) are available from the publicly available, archive search tool.
