FAS  Intelligence Resource Program

Civil Subjects

This resource displays of a variety of landforms and structures at a consistent one-meter resolution in aerial images that are 500 meters on a side. It illustrates the diversity range of landforms and structures that may be identified and characterized at this resolution, which is typical of that anticipated from the commercial imagery satellites anticipated for launch in 1998. It demonstrates both the potential of this imagery for characterizing facilities and infrastructure, as well as the limitations of this imagery for other applications.
