Frequently Asked Questions
Every case requires an understanding of the information requirements. For some cases open data sets such as Landsat, Sentinel, etc. are sufficient. For other cases, it is required to obtain high-resolution commercial data sets.
If satellite imagery from the archive is procured the process takes 1 - 3 days. For the case of targeting new satellite imagery, this can take a few days up to a few weeks, as for some regions it is difficult to procure cloud-free imagery.
Satellite imagery is usually provided as GeoTiff or GeoJPG.
