Australia: RapidEye 5m orthoimagery now extends its coverage across New Zealand. Earlier this year, national coverage was placed by the company in the archives, ready for purchase. Most areas of New Zealand have significantly less than 5 or 10 per cent cloud.
“The quick collection of satellite imagery by RapidEye has demonstrated one of the advantages of the system. RapidEye can routinely capture large areas in short time frames, providing clients with timely, cost-effective 5m orthoproducts” said Dr Gail Kelly, Business Development Manager of AAM. “This imagery will prove useful for a wide range of applications.”
RapidEye is the only commercial geospatial solutions provider to own and operate a constellation of five identical Earth Observation satellites. AAM is the distributor in Oceania for satellite data products from RapidEye.
