data sheet Features ■ Sub-meter resolution imagery □ 0.82 m panchromatic at nadir □ 3.2 m multispectral at nadir ■ High geolocational accuracy □ Stable platform for precise location measurement ■ Fast large area collection - 11.3 km imaging swath width ■ High collection capacity □ Captures up to 240,000 sq km per day ■ Acquire high quality satellite imagery for map creation, change detection, imagery analysis and more ■ Geolocate features to create maps worldwide ■ Collect a wide range of geospatial information products ■ Extend the range of suitable imaging collection targets improving decision making The IKONOS satellite is the world's first commercial satellite to collect panchromatic (black and white) images with .80 m resolution and multispectral (color) imagery with 3.2 m resolution. Imagery from the panchromatic and multispectral sensors can be merged to create .80 m color imagery (pan-sharpened). IKONOS imagery is being used for national security, military mapping, air and marine transportation, and by regional and local governments. From a 423-mile-high orbit, IKONOS has a revisit time of once every three days and downlinks directly to more than a dozen ground stations around the globe.
