GeoEye-1 50cm Global High-Resolution Satellite Imagery


GeoEye-1, the world’s highest-resolution commercial color imaging satellite, was launched on September 6, 2008 from Vandenburg Air Force Base in California. The satellite offers extraordinary detail, high accuracy and enhanced stereo for DEM generation. GeoEye-1 will simultaneously collect Panchromatic imagery at 0.41m and Multispectral imagery at 1.65m.

Due to U.S. Government Licensing, the imagery will be made available commercially as 0.5m imagery. GeoEye-1 satellite has the capacity to collect
up to 700,000 square kilometers of Panchromatic imagery (and up to 350,000 square kilometers of Pan-Sharpened Multispectral imagery) per day.
