GeoEye-1 is a very high resolution satellite that was launched in 2008 from Vandenberg Airbase and is owned and operated by DigitalGlobe. The satellite collects image data down to a pixel resolution of 0.41 m.
This agile satellite can rotate or swivel forward, backward or side-to-side with robotic precision and has a revisit capability of 1-3 days depending on latitude. The satellite simultaneously captures 0.41 m panchromatic (black & white) and 1.65 m multispectral (colour) digital imagery.
The panchromatic and multispectral datasets are available separately or can be purchased as combined (pan-sharpened) 0.5 m multispectral imagery.
