SPOT 6/7 Reflectance (Download)
SPOT imagery in its original DIMAP format. RGB, NIR (6 m) and panchromatic (1.5 m) bands with 12 bits.
SPOT 6/7 are high-resolution twin satellites offering 1.5m resolution products. They can cover large-area in single pass up to 100,000km². They are especially designed to cover nationwide areas within a season.
The block provides SPOT data in its original DIMAP format clipped to the provided AOI. The datasets are using geographic coordinates (EPSG:4326) and can be processed with the DIMAP -> GeoTIFF Conversion block or by specialised GIS/Remote Sensing Software. The available output bands of the SPOT block are: red, green, blue, NIR (6m resolution) and panchromatic (1.5 m resolution). This block has a special feature: it is possible to order (and pay for) the data once and then run workflows using this data as often as needed. It is also possible to make a reliable data cost estimation using the Test Query feature.
Note: This is an Analytic imagery product that returns 4 bands (RGB, NIR) with 12 bits. Many analytics blocks cannot process the output of this block directly but need it to be pre-processed using the Pan-sharpening (UP42) block. Please check the corresponding block descriptions if they explicitly state that they can handle this type of data.

SPOT Download block returns JPEG2000 & DIMAP format. To view it, open the DIMAP file or use the DIMAP -> GeoTIFF Conversion or Pan-sharpening SPOT/Pléiades blocks to produce GeoTIFF files. Do not open the JPEG2000 files directly as these may be geometrically transformed.
Internal Use: For customers who are using this block to perform their daily operations, and keep the dataset and all derivatives for internal use only.
Streaming vs. Download: This block is a Download block which allows downloading or storing the original images, and not only the analytics results. This page describes the differences in more detail.
