Pléiades

Very high resolution 50 cm optical imagery acquired daily on a global basis.


Introduction

Pléiades imagery is acquired by two very high resolution optical satellites (Pléiades 1A and 1B) on a daily basis anywhere on the globe. Catalog datasets are available starting from 2012. You can task Pléiades to get fresh data for real-time monitoring.

This collection provides catalog and tasking data. See more on the marketplace.

The tasking collection is restricted. To use this collection, request access.
