With this agreement, LAND INFO will expand its offering of value-added feature extraction and classification to include the use of KOMPSAT imagery. SIIS contributes to remote sensing and Earth Observation (EO) societies by providing very high resolution optical and SAR images through over 80 partners worldwide. The KOMPSAT (Korean Multi-Purpose Satellite) program is a part of the Korean government’s space development program, which provides very high resolution satellite imagery to the global remote sensing community.
KOMPSAT 3A, the most recent optical satellite among SIIS’ products, offers 40 centimeter resolution imagery for a variety of purposes such as mapping, infrastructure monitoring and natural resources. KOMPSAT-5, the first Korean SAR satellite, offers very high resolution SAR imagery (up to 85 centimeters) for change detection regardless of weather conditions.
