Collection of licensed commercial IKONOS imagery available to government agencies only.

Back to Commercial Data Purchases (CDP) Imagery

The Commercial Data Purchases (CDP) Imagery Collection contains IKONOS imagery and is archived at the USGS Earth Resources Observation & Science Center (EROS). The CDP supports the Commercial Remote Sensing Space Policy (CRSSP) by providing data to qualified Federal users at no cost. See  U.S. Federal User Certification form (.pdf).

Commercial vendor licensing may restrict access to imagery, and license restrictions may vary for each individual image. However, users have the option to request license upgrades for imagery not currently licensed for their Federal agency.  Any use of trade, firm, or product names is for descriptive purposes only and does not imply endorsement by the U.S. Government.

IKONOS

Since its launch in September 1999, GeoEye's IKONOS satellite has provided a reliable stream of image data since January 2000, which has become the standard for commercial high-resolution satellite data products. With an altitude of 681 kilometers and a revisit time of approximately 3 days, IKONOS produces 1-meter resolution panchromatic and 4-meter resolution multispectral imagery that can be combined to accommodate a wide range of high-resolution imagery applications. See IKONOS for more details.
