Planet’s archive, dating back to 2009, provides historical context on your areas of interest and deep imagery stacks for analytics and app development. With the RapidEye archive, users can train machine learning and computer vision algorithms, detect change and assess trends globally, or feed predictive models with a deep dataset.

The 5 RapidEye satellites capture up to 6.5 million km² of imagery per day at 5-meter resolution in 5 bands – Blue, Green, Red, Red Edge, and Near Infrared.

The image comes in two processing levels:

- Basic Scene (L1) has no additional enhancements and is designed for customers with advanced image processing capabilities and a desire to geometrically correct the product themselves

- Ortho Scene (L3) has been geographically corrected and processed to remove distortions.

This product is an one-time imagery download. Please specify the number of images you need over your AOI, as well as the archive date range. Please make any special requests in the remarks field, such as cadence, angle of incidence, and cloud cover. There is a minimum AOI corridor width of 10 km. Please note the minimum purchase of €4,500.00.

Please note: RapidEye imagery is no longer captured after 31/3/2020.

The RapidEye L1 Basic Scene product is a Scaled Top of Atmosphere Radiance (at sensor) and sensor corrected product, without correction for any geometric distortions inherent in the imaging processes and is not mapped to a cartographic projection. The imagery data is accompanied by Rational Polynomial Coefficients (RPCs) to enable orthorectification by the user. This kind of product is designed for users with advanced image processing and geometric correction capabilities.

The RapidEye L3 Ortho Scene product is radiometrically and sensor corrected. Imagery is orthorectified using the RPCs and an elevation model. This product was designed for a wide variety of applications that require imagery with an accurate geolocation and cartographic projection for many cartographic purposes.

Product components that are provided in a L1 RapidEye image order are:

  • Image File – Image product delivered as a group of single-band NITF or GeoTIFF files with associated RPC values. Bands are co-registered

  • Metadata File – XML format metadata file and GeoJSON metadata available

  • Unusable Data Mask (UDM) File – GeoTIFF format

  • Spacecraft information (SCI) file - XML format and contains additional information related to spacecraft attitude, spacecraft ephemeris, spacecraft temperature measurements, line imaging times, camera geometry, and radiometric calibration data

  • Browse Image - GeoTIFF format (also referred to as “Quicklook”)

Product components that are provided in a L3 RapidEye image order are:

  • Image File – GeoTIFF file that contains image data and geolocation information

  • Metadata File – XML format metadata file and GeoJSON metadata available

  • Unusable Data Mask (UDM) File – GeoTIFF format

    There is no minimum AOI for RapidEye Archive data. However, there is a minimum AOI corridor width of 10 km.

    The minimum order for RapidEye Archive data is €4,500.

    When your order is ready, we will provide to you via email the credentials for accessing your purchased imagery.

    In case more than one AOI is required, please contact us for a custom order tailored to your needs.
