Satellite imagery is an essential tool for visualising ground conditions and landscape, primarily used for tracking human and natural activity across the planet. One of its great advantages is its ability to scale; it can capture everything from small detailed sections of streets and houses to an entire hemisphere. This ability has made it an extremely popular asset across many industries. Enhanced satellite imagery is perfect for clients wishing to have unaltered access to geospatial data.
That’s why at Geoimage, we offer enhanced data for clients across various industries, thanks to our partnering satellite providers. As a leading provider of satellite imagery in Australia and across the world, we can help you get the imagery you need for your business.
The highest resolution satellite imagery for your industry
Satellite imagery has revolutionised a number of different industries. Let’s take a closer look at how.
Mining and exploration — It is essential for mining projects to have an updated visual database for reference throughout a project. Satellite imagery primarily helps in effective logistics planning, including transporting goods and materials, monitoring and change detection, surveying the area for continued safety assurances and collecting topographic data.
Infrastructure — Satellite imagery plays a crucial role in planning and assessing infrastructure projects. The highest resolution satellite imagery enables monitoring of build processes and helps stakeholders evaluate maintenance needs over time.
Agriculture — Satellite imagery facilitates agricultural planning and development. It helps in remote crop growth monitoring, storage and logistics planning based on yield cycles and provides stakeholders with detailed weather insights.
Environment — High-resolution satellite imagery helps classify species and vegetation health and collects invaluable data for strategic environmental protection to predict and prepare for disasters.
Obtaining the highest resolution satellite imagery with Geoimage
Satellite imagery is taken from sensors onboard satellites orbiting the Earth. At Geoimage, we partner with some of the biggest satellite providers to procure fresh capture satellite imagery or archived imagery from large databases and catalogues. Some of our satellite partners are:
Some images might need geometric corrections or alignments to reflect real-world projections. We process the images before delivering them to the clients in these cases. We can also submit satellite imagery on request.

After acquiring high-resolution satellite imagery, performing geometric correction and rectifying the image is essential. This process helps correlate satellite imagery with the projections and coordinates on the world map. Some of the services you can utilise to enhance your satellite imagery are:
– Haze removal
Using remote sensing satellites for imagery
There are two types of sensors in satellite technology. Passive sensors use the sun as a power source for illumination and measure the reflected energy. Active sensors use their own energy source. We use various satellites and sensors for different types of resolutions and image mapping. Some of the latest satellite constellations we use for high-resolution satellite imagery include:
Pléiades Neo — Developed by Airbus, each satellite on this state-of-the-art system adds approximately half a million km² of 30cm high-resolution satellite imagery per day to the Airbus catalogue. Some of the main applications of the system are urban monitoring and landscape monitoring.
Worldwide Legion — Developed by Maxar, this six satellite fleet is an advanced constellation designed to provide the highest levels of commercial imagery with accurate mapping of large areas and real-time monitoring.
WorldView-3 — Launched by DigitalGlobe, the satellite offers unpassed accuracy, agility and spectral diversity in satellite imagery collection. The WorldView-3 provides opportunities for remote sensing analysis for vegetation, mapping, oil and gas geology, bathymetry and land classification.
Spot-7 — Deployed by AIRBUS Defence and Space, it is a wide-swath imaging satellite acquiring natural coloured optical imagery. The satellite imagery from Spot-7 is used for improving the knowledge of Earth’s resources, monitoring natural phenomena, climatology and oceanography.
