The RapidEye Basic product is the least processed of the available RapidEye imagery products. This product is designed for customers with advanced image processing capabilities and a desire to geometrically correct the product themselves. This product linewill be available in the Planet Platform in early 2017, and will be available in GeoTIFF and NITF formats.
The RapidEye Analytic Basic Scene product is radiometrically-and sensor-corrected, providing imagery as seen from the spacecraft without correction for any geometric distortions inherent in the imaging process, and is not mapped to a cartographic projection. The imagery data is accompanied by all spacecraft telemetry necessary for the processing of the data into a geo-corrected form, or when matched with a stereo pair, for the generation of digital elevation data. Resolution of the images is 6.5 meters GSD at nadir. The images are resampled to a coordinate system defined by an idealized basic camera model for band alignment.
The radiometric corrections applied to this product are:
The geometric sensor corrections applied to this product correct for:
