SPOT World Heritage (SWH)

La mission opérationnelle de la constellation des cinq satellites Spot 1 à 5 s’est terminée en 2015 avec la The operational mission of the five SPOT satellites—SPOT-1 to SPOT-5—came to an end in 2015 when SPOT-5, the last in the series, was deorbited. For nearly 30 years they acquired millions of high-resolution scenes (10 m to 2.5 m) from all over the globe. CNES, as the owner of SPOT data, set up the SPOT World Heritage programme (SWH) to build up a unique database of almost every image collected since 1986. Work to put these data in a uniform Level 1A format and re-archive them is ongoing.


These data will be available free of charge to all users under an Etalab Open Licence. They will be viewable, searchable and downloadable via an online catalogue during the second quarter of 2021*. CNES is also working on systems to produce higher-level imagery, which may include orthorectification, atmospheric corrections and tile formats. Users will be able to order these products and specific requests for large-zone coverages could also be studied.

Sentinel 2

Every five days, the Sentinel-2 mission beams back pictures of our planet in 13 optical spectral bands, enabling frequent monitoring at high-resolution (10 m) of changes in plant cover, land occupancy and the impacts of global warming.

Drawing on the heritage of NASA’s Landsat and CNES’s SPOT programmes, the Sentinel-2 mission is part of the European Union’s Copernicus global environmental monitoring and security programme. CNES makes Sentinel-2 data available free of charge on the Internet via its PEPS Sentinel Product Exploitation Platform and delivers products corrected for atmospheric effects through the Theia land surfaces data hub. PEPS also distributes Level 2A ground reflectance data, corrected for atmospheric effects using ESA software.
