SPOT Imaging Services has been awarded a contract to supply SPOT 5 satellite imagery to the New Zealand Ministry for the Environment (MfE).
SPOT will acquire and orthorectify 10 m multispectral imagery over the country to support New Zealand’s Kyoto mapping activities.
The contract also gives the ministry access to SPOT’s existing 2.5 m natural colour orthorectified imagery for the whole country.
The products are licensed to be used by all levels of New Zealand government. Under the terms of the contract, government users should contact SPOT to receive a free copy of the SPOTMaps products.
Agencies can request imagery of their region in formats that SPOT can load directly into their GIS and mapping systems.
Interested parties should contact Jason Smith at email@example.com.
SPOT previously supplied coverage of the nation to the MfE in 2008.
