For practical purposes, the clarity of the image (the measure of how closely lines can be resolved in an image) is decided by its spatial resolution , not the number of pixels in an image (ppi). It refers to the precision of a measurement with respect to space, namely the number of independent pixel values per unit length. In LandViewer we distinguish between and offer satellite data with low (>100 m/pxl), medium (~10-50 m/pxl) resolution a high spatial resolution (~1-4 m/pxl) for a diverse range of use cases.
“The higher the resolution – the more clear the image”
The higher spatial resolution (~1-4 m/pxl) takes out the imagery characteristics to the new level – it enables to obtain a fantastically detailed picture due to length units to pixels values ratio, provides the user with the most accurate and up-to-date data due to the latest optical technologies on board the high-resolution remote-sensing satellites as well as high revisit (≤1 day) allowing to monitor current land surface conditions.
“High-resolution data supports our daily life in mobile applications, GPS trackers, urban planning among other modern activities we can’t imagine our life without”
It offers the highest detail and accuracy sold on a per km2 basis, where an area of interest is clipped out of one or more scenes (stripes). Imagery can be ordered as a new tasking collection or from an archive (if the needed date and image type is in an archive with acceptable parameters including cloud-cover.) Let’s look at them closer in turn.
“Rapid response, high detail, and frequency like in no other satellite data”
The procedure is as follows – once you draw your area of interest on the map and select high-resolution as a source data, the system provides you with a list of images that fit your AOI to various extents. An “AOI coverage” option along with a free Preview feature allows selecting the ones that cover your AOI to 100%.
NB As a result, you place your order and pay only for the area of intersection between your AOI and the chosen imagery.
Another outstanding feature, offered by commercial data providers, is the ability to task a high-resolution satellite to take a new picture upon request. As a result, you are delivered with timely and highly-accurate data according to your very specific use case.
“Many variables, such as competitors, street availability, and consumer activity are analyzed collectively to evaluate and predict the best area to locate a business”
Manage your fields with high-resolution satellite images for the most accurate and timely changes detection!
Best satellite imagery providers worldwide collect data from dozens of earth observation satellites on a daily basis. Each provider operates several sensors simultaneously and offers irreplaceable high-quality data source for all the diversity of domains. You can purchase high-resolution data directly from Digital Globe, Airbus, Planet, 21 AT, SIIS, SpaceWill, UrtheCast among other top world’s providers.
The high-resolution images resellers net is rapidly increasing straight to the need for high-quality data so that one can find and purchase high-resolution satellite data from the numerous software companies, such as Harris, Landinfo, Apollo, Mapping, Geocento, European Space Imaging and others around the Globe.
The key advantage of buying from a reseller is that you are offered a bunch of images, aggregated from sensors of different providers the reseller cooperates with. It means that in contrast with a Provider, delivering images from its satellites only, the reseller offers a choice based on resolution, use case, price, AOI, etc.
To keep the pace of technology growth, LandViewer offers an option to purchase high-resolution images from one of the largest catalogs of high quality data of the world’s top 3 providers, which are:
The reason why high-resolution satellite imagery is always a commercial-based data is obvious and out in the open. It is that obtaining of high-quality data is an extremely cost-consuming technology as each and every high-resolution satellite, regardless of the operation mode and the purpose of launching a model, is fitted with the expensive push-broom imaging and the most up-to-date optical equipment. And we should admit high revisit, fast delivery, fantastic detail and man to machine&machine to machine tasking are definitely worth it.
On the top of all the unrivaled pros of high-resolution data application, LandViewer has prepared some extra bonuses for its users, that is:
