Launched on Sep 6, 2008, GeoEye-1 can collect images with a ground resolution of 0.41 metres in panchromatic mode and at 1.65 metres for multispectral mode. GeoEye-1 offers three metre geolocation accuracy, which means that customers can map natural and man-made features to within 3 metres of their actual location.

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) 0.41m multispectral imagery.
