Spot 5.0 Metre Imagery Options

5.0 Metre COLOUR PRODUCTS

5 meter colour products are derived from images acquired by Spot 5. They are obtained by merging two separate images acquired simultaneously by the same HRG instrument, one in panchromatic mode at 5 metre resolution and the other in three band multispectral mode at 10 metre resolution. Images thus obtained are like a three band colour image, with a resolution of 5 metres and panchromatic viewing geometry.

5.0 Metre Black & White Products

5 metre black and white products are derived from images acquired by Spot 5. These images are acquired in a single panchromatic band in the visible spectrum. In this mode, the ground pixel size is 5 metres. Spot 5's panchromatic band covers wavelengths between 0.48 and 0.71µm.
