Did you see the news that we have a satellite constellation in Image Hunter that offers high-resolution mono, video and nighttime imagery? If not, read on and find out more about this exciting new constellation!
Update! Nine new, high-resolution Jilin-1 satellites are now operational and ready for purchase on Image Hunter! For the first time, CG Satellite is offering a 50-centimeter (cm) resolution, 4-band product from their new KF01B satellite. They also added three new video and nighttime satellites with 1.2-meter (m) resolution and natural color; as well as five new GF series 75-cm and 1-m resolution satellites.
Apollo Mapping offers high-resolution Jilin-1 imagery from satellites owned and operated by CG Satellite. This new partnership unlocks a constellation of multiple satellites in four different series (i.e. Optical, Video, GF and KF) launched between 2015 and now. With a robust archive accessible through Image Hunter, the Jilin-1 product suite includes nighttime, video and mono imagery!
Jilin-1 offers an impressive variety of resolutions from 50-cm to 1.2-m. It’s also the only constellation boasting an array of unique capabilities, like 120-second color video collected at 92-cm and 1.2-m resolution; and 92-cm to 1.2-m color nighttime imagery. Five satellites in the Jilin-1 Video series also collect a 3.68-meter red-edge band for vegetation mapping; while one satellite in the KF series collects data with a massive 136-kilometer (km) wide footprint. With so many satellites in orbit, Jilin-1 revisits the same location up to six times a day, resulting in a robust archive filled with large-footprint images.
