understanding satellite image resolution
Daily, we curate millions of square kilometres of fresh satellite images acquired by our partners’ satellites. Each satellite produces images at different resolution. When the images are viewed via our Portal or through the API, they are selected according to the users’ zoom level. The lowest zoom level is 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 zoom level, users can get up to 30cm resolution over an area the size of a football stadium.
