  • Topsat images acquired by the Landmap project from Infoterra are available for selected areas in the following countries and locations: Albania, Argentina, Armenia, Botswana, Cameroon, China, Croatia, Egypt, Farasan Islands, Ghana, Honduras, Iraq, Kazakhstan, Krakatau, Mali, Mexico, Nigeria, Nile Delta, Palestine, Patagonia, Russia and Santa Cruz Island. Data are available as panchromatic or multispectral, in Tiff, ecw (Enhanced Compression Wavelet) and JPEG formats. The Joint Information Systems Committee (JISC) funded Landmap service which ran from 2001 to July 2014 collected and hosted a large amount of earth observation data for the majority of the UK. After removal of JISC funding in 2013, the Landmap service is no longer operational, with the data now held at the NEODC.

  • Raw Landsat 4/5 data covering the UK were acquired from Infoterra by the Landmap project. Landmap subsequently orthorectified and mosaiced the images. Two types of image data from the satellite are available for the UK from 1988 to 1992: MultiSpectral Scanner (MSS) and Thematic Mapper (TM). Landsat 4 and 5 carry both the MSS and the TM sensors; however, routine collection of MSS data was terminated in late 1992. The MSS and TM sensors primarily detect reflected radiation from the Earth's surface in the visible and near-infrared (IR) wavelengths, but the TM sensor with its seven spectral bands provides more radiometric information than the MSS sensor. The Landsat Program is one of the longest running programmes for image acquisition from space, first launched in 1972 the program is managed between the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) and NASA. Eight satellites have so far been launched, the most recent being Landsat 8, on February 11th, 2013. Landsat satellite imagery offers a unique resource for global change research and applications in agriculture, geology, forestry, regional planning, education, and national security. The Joint Information Systems Committee (JISC) funded Landmap service which ran from 2001 to July 2014 collected and hosted a large amount of earth observation data for the majority of the UK. After removal of JISC funding in 2013, the Landmap service is no longer operational, with the data now held at the NEODC.

  • 10 to 20m resolution panchromatic imagery is available for the UK and Ireland from 1986 to 1995 (from SPOT 1, 2 and 3 satellites). They are isolated scenes captured over an extended time period. The data were acquired by the Landmap project from Infoterra. The SPOT satellite Earth Observation System was designed by the Centre National d'Etudes Spatiales (CNES), in France. There have been 7 SPOT (Satellite Pour l'Observation de la Terre) satellites launched since 1986 (as of August 2014), providing medium to high resolution of the Earth's surface. SPOT 1, 2 and 3 carried a multi-spectral and panchromatic sensor on board. SPOT 4 was successfully launched in March 1998. The first three SPOT satellites carry twin HRVs (High-Resolution Visible Imaging instruments) that operate in a number of viewing configurations and in different spectral modes. Some of those viewing configurations and spectral modes include one HRV only operating in a dual spectral mode (i.e. in both panchromatic mode and multispectral mode); two HRVs operating in the twin-viewing configuration (i.e. one HRV in panchromatic mode and one HRV in multispectral mode); and two HRVs operating independently of each other (i.e. not in twin-viewing configuration). The position of each HRV entrance mirror can be commanded by ground control to observe a region of interest. Operating independently of each other, the two HRVs acquire imagery in either multispectral (XS) and/or panchromatic (P) modes at any viewing angle within plus or minus 27 degrees. This off-nadir viewing enables the acquisition of stereoscopic imagery. To make sure the satellite covers every point on the earth's surface, the HRV imaging instruments offer a field of view that is wider than the greatest distance between two adjacent tracks.

After removal of JISC funding in 2013, the Landmap service is no longer operational, with the data now held at the NEODC.

  • Landsat 7 imagery was acquired by the Landmap project from Infoterra. Landsat 7 satellite is equipped with an Enhanced Thematic Mapper Plus (ETM+) instrument, developed by Raytheon Santa Barbara Remote Sensing in Santa Barbara, California. Imagery is available for the whole of the UK from 1999 to 2001 at 15m resolution for the panchromatic and 25m resolution for the band 1-3 and 1-7 GeoTiff images.
