Download - SPOT

The SPOT satellite Earth Observation System was designed by the Centre National d'Etudes Spatiales (CNES), in France, and developed with the participation of Sweden and Belgium. The first SPOT satellite was launched in February, 1986. Since then, the launch pad Ariane, located in French Guiana, has put three more SPOT satellites into orbit to keep the SPOT system operational for nearly fifteen years. The SPOT archive at the Landmap Service, is composed of 152 panchromatic images of 10m resolution covering the whole of the British Isles from the early 1990s.

Medium resolution SPOT data can be used for a range of regional applications including land cover assessment and monitoring of vegetation.
