The ZiYuan-3 Advantage
ZiYuan-3 is the first commercial, stereoscopic satellite launched by China. It was constructed by China’s Academy of Space Technology and launched on January 9, 2012 from the Taiyuan Satellite Launch Center. The second, similar satellite in the constellation was launched on May 30, 2016. Both ZiYuan-3 satellites are equipped with sensors collecting 2.1-meter (m) panchromatic and 5.8-m 4-band multispectral (i.e. blue, green, red and near-infrared [NIR]) mono imagery; as well as 2.5-m to 3.5-m panchromatic stereo imagery.
ZiYuan-3 is ideal for topographic mapping, tracking land use, urban planning and disaster management with its 52-kilometer swath width and stereo imaging capabilities. Since its launch in 2012, ZiYuan-3 has collected large swaths of up to 2.5-m resolution stereo data for the production of detailed digital surface models (DSMs) and digital terrain models (DTMs).
Below is the least expensive, color ZiYuan-3 data offered. Prices increase for new collections, stereo and data processing. Note that volume discounts are available.
