understanding satellite image resolution
We are curating on a daily millions of square kilometres of fresh satellite images acquired by many different satellites operated by our partners. Each of this satellite has a different sensor and produces images at different resolution. When the images are viewed via our Portal or through the API, they are selected accordingly to the users’ level of zoom which indicates the level of details they are interested. At the lowest level of zoom that users can get an image, it will be at 1.5m resolution (i.e. 1 pixel on the image represents 1.5m on the ground) over an area the size of a Formula 1 circuit. At the highest level of zoom, users can get up to 30cm resolution over an area the size of a football stadium.
