Imagery Purchasing FAQ

What is resolution?

Resolution, also referred to as “ground surface distance” (GSD), refers to the relationship between pixel size and distance on the ground. Resolution of 30cm, for instance, implies that each pixel of imagery will represent a 30cm x 30cm area on the ground.

How do I know what resolution I need?

It depends on what you’re looking at. If the object or phenomena you’re observing is very large, a coarser resolution (>5m) might be sufficient, whereas smaller objects will require more granular (<1m) resolution.

What resolution do I need for my machine learning model?

We’ve found that the best test for computer vision is human vision. If you can see it, a model can, too. We’d recommend checking out some of our samples to understand what can be seen at each level of resolution.

What providers’ data does Astraea provide?

We provide imagery from Maxar, Planet, Airbus, 21AT, SIIS, as well as public providers.

What product options and processing levels are available?

Our base imagery (and prices) assumes 4-band (RGB + NIR) orthorectified imagery. Other options are available! Reach out if you’re interested in more.

What can imagery be used for?

See our documentation.

How will I receive my data after I order it?

We will deliver your data through our Earth OnDemand platform.  Once we obtain the imagery from the provider, we will organize the files in our catalog and make it available to you in a private Dataset in Earth OnDemand.  This means you will have the ability to view, download, and access the image from EarthAI Notebook, and, if you have multiple time periods, compare the image to other time periods.
