Featured Product – 32-band 10-meter OHS Hyperspectral Satellite Imagery

Are you assessing land use cover over a large region?

Perhaps you are looking to improve the results of your automated classifications?

Or maybe you have another spectral analytic technique in mind for that next mapping project?

If ‘yes’ is the answer to any of these questions, then 32-band 10-meter OHS hyperspectral imagery is the data for you!

A 10-m OHS image of Extremadura, Spain collected on July 15, 2018. This image uses bands 12 – 8 – 4 (i.e. red – green – blue) to create a natural color view of the landscape, and has been processed by Apollo Mapping for improved clarity and colors. (Image Credit: Orbita)

Orbita Hyperspectral Satellite (OHS) collects hyperspectral imagery at 10-meter resolution in the 400-nanometer (nm) to 1,000-nm (from blue to near-infrared) spectral range. OHS is the only commercial satellite constellation offering hyperspectral imagery, setting these microsats apart from their competitors. OHS’ large, 150-kilometer footprint and 32 spectral bands open access to new avenues for mapping land use change along with disaster relief, spectral analysis, assessing plant health and so much more!

Orbita is continuously adding to their constellation of microsats, accruing a cache of archive imagery. With eight OHS satellites currently in orbit, each collecting up to 5,000,000 square kilometers a day, Orbita’s archive is ever-expanding.

Here is a quick summary of OHS’ specifications:

  • Resolution: 10-meter
  • Footprint width: up to 150-kilometers (3 individual scans, each about 50-km wide)
  • Spectral band: 32-bands from 400-nm to 1,000-nm, download detailed band information here
  • Daily collection capability per satellite: 5,000,000 square kilometers

For more detailed OHS specifications and full resolution samples, you can refer to our website here! And you can search for OHS coverage 24-hours a day by using Image Hunter.

  1. Hi, I am a mature PhD candidate at the University of Adelaide, South Australia. My research is in Marine Ecology and Microbiology and I one of my core field sites ib is in the area near Edithburgh on the York Peninsula.
    I note that images GJIB_PMS_2330120 and the one below cover that area.
    Do you have a research policy to provide access to researchers?
    I have one from PLANET which is useful but low resolution.
