Overview & HistoryPricing

The SPOT constellation includes seven medium resolution satellites launched from French Guiana and India starting in 1986. Of the seven satellites put into orbit, three are still active: SPOT 5, SPOT 6 and SPOT 7.

Now operated by Airbus Defense and Space, SPOT 5, 6 and 7 feature panchromatic, multispectral (or blue, green, red and near-infrared/NIR) and short-wave infrared (SWIR) spectral bands. Orbiting our planet at 822 kilometers (km), the SPOT satellites are able to image huge pieces of land each day with a footprint that is 60-km wide. The newest satellites, SPOT 6 and SPOT 7, collect a combined 6 million sq km per day – or an area twice the size of India every day!

Below is the least expensive, highest resolution SPOT data offered. Prices increase for new collections, additional spectral bands, alternate data products and data processing. Note that academic and volume discounts are available.
