Pléiades Primary (Download)


Provides non-rectified, unprojected high resolution 12-bit Pléiades images. Available since 2012, these images are acquired by the twin constellation Pléiades 1A and 1B on a daily basis anywhere on the globe. These images are optimal for users familiar with remote sensing processing methods who want to apply their own production techniques (orthorectification or 3D modelling).
