Satellite data with high resolution are defined by spatial resolution of about tens of meters. These data are often obtained simultaneously in panchromatic and mulitspectral mode with significant share of spectral bands covering infrared optical spectrum. Some satellites acquire the data solely in a regular, usually a few week period. Other more modern satellites are able to take a data according to the customer’s request. In both cases extensive data archives are available containing all the images acquired since the launch of the satellite.
The data are suitable for mapping or updating of maps in the scale range 1:100,000 – 1:25,000.

The typical applications include:
  • Regional mapping
  • Regional planning
  • Urban development monitoring
  • Land cover/land use mapping and change assessment
  • Vegetation monitoring
  • Mapping of agricultural areas and classification of agricultural crops
  • Mapping of forest areas and classification of forest ecosystem
  • Logging monitoring
  • Geological mapping
  • Geomorphologic mapping
  • Disasters impacts mapping
  • DEM generation
