Have you considered Pléiades 1A imagery for your next geospatial project? If not, let the Apollo Mapping team show you how this new high-resolution data source can work for nearly every mapping and remote sensing application.
A variety of Pléiades 1A products are available from both a growing archive and as a new collection, including 50-centimeter (cm) pansharpened imagery and 50-cm panchromatic – 2-meter (m) 4-band multispectral bundles. We are happy to discuss the technical specifications, pricing and tasking options available with this new satellite constellation as Pléiades 1A will be joined in space by its twin, Pléiades 1B, later this year.
Working with Pléiades 1A for the past months, we have noticed that:
- The imagery archive is already growing and is well targeted.
- Astrium is able to deliver on their Pléiades 1A tasking feasibilities.
- The data is crisp with excellent color saturation so that it is on par with competitors’ 50-cm satellites.
The Ease of Tasking With Pléiades 1A
The Apollo Mapping team has already placed multiple orders for new collections – also called tasking orders – with Pléiades 1A and we cannot be more pleased. We have been able to collect single, stereo and even tri-stereo orders in short timeframes over some of the cloudiest places in the world. When it comes to tasking Pléiades 1A, there are three options for the service level: standard, priority and emergency. With each of these options, there is increasing ‘weight’ given to your tasking order (as well as a higher price) and thus data will be collected quicker as you increase the service level. There is a 100 square kilometer order for all tasking orders Pléiades 1A.

Pléiades 1A Sample Imagery
This month we feature stunning sample imagery collected by Pléiades 1A over the Bingham Canyon Copper Mine in Utah on April 8, 2012. We Photo Enhanced this 50-cm natural color imagery to improve its colors and sharpness; and the results speak for themselves!
