Free SPOT Images now in USGS Archive

The U.S. Geological Survey has begun to distribute, over the Internet, SPOT satellite image data collected over parts of North America between 1986 and 1998.

The USGS is distributing this data at no charge through the USGS Earth Explorer search and order tool. Access is open to any registered user within the U.S., provided he or she agrees to use the SPOT data for non-commercial purposes.

Spot Image Corporation of Chantilly, Va., is the U.S. subsidiary of the French satellite imagery provider, Spot Image SA. With two operational earth observation satellites in orbit and four more under development, Spot Image is a leading commercial supplier of geospatial information.
