What is this data?

SPOT5 images are satellite images that have been acquired by the SPOT 5 Satellite instrument. The instruments include:

  • Two panchromatic spectral bands (480 – 710nm; 5m/pixel ) that combined give a 2.5m/pixel image product.
  • Three multispectral bands (500-590nm; 610-680nm; 780-890nm) with a resolution of 10m/pixel.
  • One short-wave infrared (1580-1750nm) with a resolution of 20m/pixel.
