HxGN Content Program, 15 cm (Download)

Provides RGB+NIR imagery with 15 cm GSD in GeoTIFF for urban areas and select wide areas in the US.


Introduction

This block provides high-resolution 8-bit Hexagon aerial images, either as downloaded or streamed products. These images are acquired with Leica ADS100 and Leica DMC III large format digital airborne sensors on a yearly basis in the USA. The datasets are available starting with 2014.

Disclaimer

HxGN provides all the image tiles intersecting a certain AOI or bounding box. The smaller the zoom level, the larger the tiles and the larger the credit consumption (the pricing is per sq. km). We strongly advise not changing the zoom level value during job configuration.
