Update on 5-meter RapidEye Mosaics

For those of you in need of ready-to-use, wide-area coverage mosaics, 5-meter natural color RapidEye Mosaics are a perfect fit. RapidEye Mosaics are virtually cloud-free and have been created with recent imagery collected during narrow time frames. With a 77-km wide footprint and five identical satellites in orbit, there is no better constellation to image huge areas in short times than RapidEye. These wide-area mosaics are competitively priced so ask your Apollo Mapping representative for a quote to support your next mapping project.
