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 km and a revisit time of approximately 3 days, IKONOS produces one-meter panchromatic and four-meter multispectral imagery that can be combined to accommodate a wide range of high-resolution imagery applications.
