Pléiades Neo

Very high resolution 30 cm optical satellite imagery, acquired worldwide with a revisit rate of 2 times a day. The collection contains data from 2021 to the present.


Overview

Pléiades Neo imagery is acquired by four very high resolution optical satellites (Pléiades Neo 3 and 4) daily anywhere on the globe. Catalog datasets are available starting from November 2021. See more on the marketplace.

Geographic coverage

The geographic coverage is global.

Note that for catalog imagery, the spatial resolution over certain areas is downscaled to 2 m. It means that the actual ground sampling distance of the assets from the downscaled areas will be greater than 2 m, regardless of the processing level or other parameters.

Catalog data products

  • Analytic has a more stable contrast and can be used to extract physical properties, such as radiance or reflectance — for example, in vegetation health monitoring.
  • Pansharpened reflectance is a pansharpened analytics image with a multispectral Look-Up-Table containing rendering of color curves.
  • Display has a true color curve applied on top of atmospheric correction. As a result, it looks better visually and can be used to extract features — for example, in car detection or infrastructure monitoring.
