Revision as of 17:43, 31 May 2016 by TomElliott (restructured to provide a distinction between open and $$ data)
What are the sources for satellite photographs of landscape?
Sources of Open Data
- Corona Atlas of the Middle East (select orthorectified CORONA imagery)
- The U.S. Geological Survey's Earth Resources Observation and Science (EROS) Center provides a variety of geospatial data products (including aerial and satellite imagery), many not limited to North America. These are summarized, with links to their various dissemination systems, on the EROS Products and Data Available page. Available imagery includes: CORONA, Landsat.
Sources of Licensable/Purchaseable Data
Other programs and websites
Other than Google Earth, which has good street-level images of most built-up areas, the sources known to us are:
- NASA's World Wind (free, mostly comparable in resolution to Google)
- DigitalGlobe/QuickBird (commercial)
