Frequently Asked Questions
To make this understanding simple, let’s start with a little background. Energy is carried by a single photon (which is a type of particle). This energy is reflective of a single photon’s electromagnetic frequency, which is proportional to its wavelength. The wavelengths range across the electromagnetic spectrum and are representative of solar radiation (light) that is reflected off the Earth’s surface.
Spectral bands in satellite imagery refer to the different type of wavelengths that satellite sensors detect. By using different bands, various insights can be highlighted. Different spectral bands are better suited in detecting certain objects. For the satellites that Geoimage has access to, the types of bands that each satellite uses can be found on their corresponding Satellite & Sensors page.
Geoimage has been providing clients with satellite imagery solutions for over 30 years. Our experience allows us to provide the best recommendations including processing services custom suited for use which alternatives such as Google Earth and other free imagery providers cannot deliver. Geoimage provides rapid delivery options and greater information to clients so more detailed evaluations of the area can be carried out.
There are several thousand types of satellites orbiting the Earth since the first ever artificial satellite was launched in 1957 called Sputnik. Some of these include communication satellites, weather satellites and navigational satellites. However imaging satellites (as the name suggests), are used to capture imagery for Earth observation. They are also known as Remote Sensing Satellites.
Geoimage uses these satellites from our partners such as Airbus, Maxar, RESTEC and Pixxel for all imagery requests. Satellites generally operate for a number of years where more advanced satellites are launched in succession. Depending on the technology used they offer capture abilities at different resolutions and spectral bands. Under our Satellites & Sensors page you can view all the satellites we currently use with details on their technical specifications.
If you need high-quality raw or processed satellite imagery, Geoimage are certainly the right choice for your company. We have decades of experience, a team of highly qualified specialists and a network of highly capable partners — enabling us to provide a full range of services to international clients and organisations located across Australia.
Satellite image solutions from Geoimage have been used by companies in many different industries and by numerous government bodies for a diverse range of applications. We have the resources, knowledge and expertise to create highly focused solutions that meet the requirements of companies that need the highest quality images and data.
If you are still unsure whether Geoimage is the right company to meet your geospatial requirements, we invite you to call +617 3319 4990 to speak to one of our specialists.

We serve organisations in many different industries and sectors, including:
– Mining & exploration — We provide aerial imagery in Australia and elsewhere for exploration, monitoring, compliance, safety, operations and environmental applications. With more than 30 years of experience in this sector, we are one of the most highly-qualified service providers.
– Agriculture — Our work in the agriculture industry has helped organisations improve their efficiency in farm management, crop yields, land-use change detection, environmental monitoring, disease prevention and many other areas.
– Infrastructure — Our geospatial solutions for infrastructure can be integrated with your GIS and reporting systems. Alternatively, we can develop a standalone custom solution based on a web subscription model that meets your requirements. We have created solutions for applications including construction, design, asset management, and surface movement monitoring, among others.
– Environmental — Our environmental assessment, monitoring and compliance solutions have been used by organisations in many different industries to make better and more informed decisions.
– Government — From surveying natural resources to capturing state infrastructure images and more, we provide a comprehensive range of aerial imagery in Australia to local and state government organisations.
Whatever industry you operate in, Geoimage can provide the satellite imagery services you require.
There are different type of resolutions such as spatial, temporal and spectral in regard to Earth observation. In reference to information such as ‘30cm very high resolution imagery’ for example, this refers to the spatial resolution. Spatial resolution is describing what can be represented by one pixel in an image.
For example, a 30cm resolution image means that one pixel in the image represents 30cm x 30cm. To put this in perspective, an average car of 4.2m (420cm) – would equate to 14 pixels on the image. By referring to satellite imagery with these resolution values, this gives a clear indication of objects that can and cannot be detected in an image.
Geoimage are satellite imagery providers. We partner with some of the largest satellite vendors on the globe such as Maxar and Airbus.
We provide a comprehensive range of satellite image acquisition and satellite imagery processing services for clients in Australia and worldwide. Whatever your geospatial needs, Geoimage can put together a solution that is tailored to meet them in full.
Specific services we offer include atlasTSF, DEMs (digital elevation models), SWIR (spectral analysis), InSAR, geophysical interpretation, image processing/data analytics and monitoring/compliance. We can also provide you with web-hosted dashboards and specialised software designed to extract and analyse data from satellite imagery.
If you require a service that you do not see mentioned on our website, please don’t hesitate to contact us as we are able to provide customised solutions for a wide variety of use cases. Whether you want to buy satellite images online from our extensive archives or order fresh images to be calibrated and enhanced for a specific application, Geoimage can satisfy any and all of your satellite imagery requirements.
With satellite imagery, different perspectives enable projects to gain valuable insights that can be fundamental to the decision-making process.
Archive imagery is recovered from historical databases. These are very useful in monitoring use cases or when comparing past images or data sets. Fresh imagery requires tasking the satellites to capture a specific area of interest (AOI) for a recent image. Typically, archive imagery is less expensive as it has already been captured whereas tasking a satellite to capture a specific area will incur additional costs. To understand which option is best for you, contact our Sales Team.
Aerial imagery is where photographs are taken from a flying object such as an aircraft or drone. Satellite imagery on the other hand are images and data taken from sensors onboard satellites orbiting the Earth. Both forms of imagery have a wide range of applications and use cases. There are some significant differences when considering aerial imagery in Australia or satellite imagery.
As aerial imagery is captured closer to the Earth’s surface, weather conditions need to be taken into consideration for data acquisition. The cost of fuel for aircraft surveys is also a factor in determining the flight duration for the area of interest. Satellite imagery does not have these restrictions and can capture large areas in a single pass. As satellites are located in the outer layers of Earth’s atmosphere, images taken require some type of geometric corrections to reflect real world map projections. This processing is done before delivery of the images to clients. However raw images are also able to be supplied if requested.
Depending on your AOI (area of interest) and the service you require this can influence the price of a project as different satellites may be used. If you require only archive data or a fresh capture this is also taken into consideration as archive imagery is typically less expensive than a new tasked image.
