Super-resolution Pléiades/SPOT

Quadruples imagery resolution of Pléiades or SPOT.


Super-resolution Pléiades/SPOT quadruples the image resolution of Pléiades and SPOT satellite imagery to increase the performance of object detection algorithms.

Supported and Recommended Workflows

  • Pléiades Reflectance (Download) -> Pan-sharpening -> Super-resolution Pléiades/SPOT
  • SPOT Reflectance (Download) -> Pan-sharpening -> Super-resolution Pléiades/SPOT
  • Processing from Storage (for Analytic Products from Airbus) -> Pan-sharpening -> Super-resolution Pléiades/SPOT

Remark: Pan-sharpening includes the necessary DIMAP to GeoTIFF conversion.


Super-resolution is the process of increasing the resolution of images using an algorithm. This block is based on a state-of-the-art Convolutional Neural Network algorithm. Quality improvements of the images were measured using the SSIM metric to guarantee that information content was added by the algorithm.

The image resolution of the processed images will be quadrupled, but the information content of algorithmically derived images does not contain more information than images which were originally recorded at a higher resolution.

Use Case

The use case for this block is as a preprocessing step for object detection algorithms (ships, cars, planes etc) as the images become much crisper and contour outlines more well defined.

Note: The runtime of the algorithm is between 30 and 60 minutes per sqkm for Pléiades imagery.
