The "Images" section of this portal contains the archive of Pléiades images acquired by Belgian Institutions. You can perform a search in this section according to several criteria; these are briefly described here.

Using the data

The images can be used for a multitude of applications (see the page Markets on the Airbus Geo Information website). Their usage however requires a minimum of knowledge in Remote Sensing as well as the necessary software for image processing.

To get familiar with satellite imagery, you can look up the module Introducing Remote Sensing on the EOEdu website.

On the website Orfeo Toolbox you can find free image processing software, manuals and user tips.

If you’re looking for more information on the differen Pléiades products (processing level, formats, …), consult the page Pléiades Products on the Airbus Geo Information website.

If you have any other questions, please don’t hesitate to contact the EODesk.
