  • The NIR Red-Edge dataset are acquired from the 5 satellite constellations run by RapidEye.
  •  

  • The NIR Red-Edge datasets at presnt available for Northern Ireland
  •  

  • RapidEye offers largest collection (4,000,000 km2/day) capacities and quickest return time anywhere on earth.
  •  

  • RapidEye's satellites are the first commercial satellites to offer the Red-Edge band which can be applied to monitor vegetation health, species separation, etc. wherever variances in vegetation involved in a study.
  •  

  • The FAQ section of the Red-Edge dataset is a useful place to find out general information about the product.
