ResourceSat-1 Full Archive

ResourceSat-1, also known as IRS-P6, was an EO mission in the Indian Remote Sensing Satellite (IRS) series of Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO). ResourceSat-1 was the continuation of the IRS-1C/1D missions with considerably enhanced capabilities. The overall objective of the mission was to provide continued remote-sensing data services on an operational basis for integrated land and water resources management. ESA offers access to worldwide ResourceSat-1 archived data via the TPM scheme. Read more

IMAGE2006 European Coverage

Two cloud-free coverages of Europe are available, resampled to 20 m spatial resolution in national projection and 25 m in European projection for orthorectified data. Data have been sourced from SPOT-4 HRVIR (20 m original spatial resolution), SPOT-5 HRG (10 m original spatial resolution) and Resourcesat-1 (IRS-P6) LISS III (with 23 m original spatial resolution), each with four spectral bands. The swath width is about 60 km for the SPOT satellites and 140 km for the IRS-P6 satellite. Access is provided through the ESA TPM scheme. Read more
