Medium Resolution (>10-80m) Medium Temporal


These data sets have a spatial resolution between 10–80 m and are collected on a weekly to monthly basis. They are the most commonly used category of imagery data.

For several decades the Landsat series of satellites have provided the majority of medium resolution optical imagery for operational programs in Australia. Data is derived from MSS, TM, ETM+, Aster, OLI, Sentinel-2 MSI missions and includes the following spectral ranges, VIS, NIR, SWIR, PAN.

Medium resolution optical sensors have traditionally been operated for public good, although the number of commercial sensors is increasing.
