Abstract: SPOT is a medium-resolution (for SPOT 1, 2, 3, 4) or high-resolution (for SPOT 5), optical imaging Earth observation satellite system operating from space. This programme is part of CNES's Earth observation strategy. Since 1986, the SPOT family of satellites has been viewing our planet and providing remarkably high-quality images. The system comprises a serie of spacecrafts plus ground facilities ... View entire text

Purpose: SPOT has been designed to improve the knowledge and management of the Earth by exploring the Earth's resources, detecting and forecasting phenomena involving climatology and oceanography, and monitoring human activities and natural phenomena. The SPOT system includes a series of satellites and ground control resources for satellite control and programming, image production, and distribution.
