Urthecast Various data imagery packages


Urthecast offers satellite imagery and color video at multiple resolutions and with various revisit rates (the frequency at which the satellite returns to a location) to provide a variety of pricing options according to customer needs.

Features for all: They also provide cloud-based application programming interfaces (APIs) to ease integration and management of satellite imagery data or video. One feature, the Events API, allows for users to 'subscribe' to one area and receive notifications every time new images or video are uploaded for that area.

First in line: Urthecast is launching OptiSAR, designed to be the world's first fully-integrated, multispectral optical and Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR). These pairings of SAR and optical data allow for nearly simultaneous data gathering, which allows these systems to fully integrate with one another. OptiSAR also provides higher revisit rates and guarantees cloud free imagery.

What's included?: Urthecast provides 5,000 initial map views for free (where one map view is equal to 15 Map Tiles API Calls), as well as unlimited access to all API features. After 5,000 views, they have various subscription levels (see described in full under 'cost').


Revisit Rate: Multiple times per day
Resolution: 0.5 to 5 meters depending on the satellite
Imagery: Color image and video at 30 frames per second
