Significantly Smaller Minimum Order Sizes for FORMOSAT-2 Medium-Resolution Imagery!

Starting immediately, we are happy to announce new, significantly smaller minimum orders for medium-resolution FORMOSAT-2 satellite imagery. FORMOSAT-2 was launched in 2004 and died in orbit during 2014; and during its ten years in space, it amassed a huge archive of high-quality 2-meter (m) panchromatic and 8-m 4-band multispectral imagery. In the 2000s, there were relatively few satellites in space so this significantly reduced cost should help all of our clients looking for cloud-free alternatives to QuickBird, IKONOS and SPOT where their coverage lacks.

FORMOSAT-2 is sold by polygons of fixed dimensions so it can be a bit confusing to price out. We are happy to help with pricing if you have a project that requires archived 2-m imagery. If you would like to receive a copy of our new price list with the reduced minimum order sizes for FORMOSAT-2, send us an email at [email protected].
