SPOT SceneThe standard product
SPOT Scenes are standard products which undergo basic preprocessing.
SPOT Scenes are intended for:
- geometric image processing,
- thematic studies.
SPOT Scenes options
Resolution and spectral mode
Depending on the level and detail required for specific applications:
|Black & White||Colour|
*except level 1B
Depending on the surface of the area to be studied:
- full scenes: 60 km long x 60 to 80 km wide, according to the viewing angle.
- extracts of scenes
(for 2.5 m and 5 m in black & white and in colour and for 10 m in colour):
1/2 scene : ~ 42 km x 42 km
1/4 scene : ~ 30 km x 30 km
1/8 scene : ~ 21 km x 21 km
Scene extracts can be positioned freely within a scene.
Depending on the geometric corrections required:
- level 1A
- level 1B
- level 2A
Depending on the expected geometric accuracy:
- over flat ground it is greater than 350 m (1 sigma) for the SPOT 1 to 4 satellites (10 m for black and white and 20 m for colour),
- and drops to only 30 m (1 sigma) for SPOT 5 (2.5 m and 5 m in black and white and colour and 10 m in colour).
The SPOT Scenes are supplied in the Dimap format.
The SPOT Scenes from SPOT 1 to 4 may come on request in the CAP format (CEOS standard).
