ZY-3 Satellite High Resolution Stereo Image

Since its launch on 9th, January 2012, China’s first civilian high resolution stereo mapping satellite ZY-3 has provided a reliable stream of high resolution stereo image data. ZY-3 produces three line-array stereo panchromatic images (2.1-meter for nadir,3.5-meter for forward and backward) and 5.8-meter multispectral (red, blue, green, near infrared) imagery that can be combined in a variety of ways to accommodate a wide range of high-resolution imagery applications.
