At EOS, we know that medium resolution images are ideal for covering large areas such as countries, continents or even the entire globe! While there is no text-book definition of “medium-resolution” satellite imagery, this typically means resolution less than 1m, offering many options of use.
Medium resolution photos were originally provided on a scene basis, however newer medium resolution satellites such as SPOT 6/7 and RapidEye now support custom Areas of Interest with per km2 pricing.
With the exception of WorldView-2 and WorldView-3, medium resolution satellites usually provide extra multi-spectral bands, which make them ideal for image analysis and classification. The large collection swath widths enable them to collect larger areas in a short amount of time, offering a better temporal selection.
