Monitoring (ERS Data)

Monitoring is a system for monitoring processes, assessing the situation in the environment and society. In the process, an assessment of a phenomenon, an event is given, depending on the impact of numerous factors. Elements of the monitoring system

1. Monitoring the effectiveness of the intervention.
2. Observation of changes by sectors of human activity and the environment as a whole.
3. Analysis and integration of monitoring results.

For the monitoring process, people came up with a remote sensing process. Remote sensing is the process of detecting and monitoring the physical characteristics of the terrain, objects on it by measuring its reflected and emitted radiation at a distance (usually from a satellite or aircraft, UAV). Special sensor cameras collect remote sensing images in a wide electromagnetic spectrum range, with overview and detailed characteristics, in a time series that help researchers analyze the situation on Earth.


Highest resolution

Maxar is the first company to deliver native 30 cm resolution and derived 15 cm high-definition imagery, delivering clearer, richer images that empower better decision-making through improved situational awareness.


Our advanced accuracy technology ensures content from Maxar is as closely aligned as possible to a known coordinate on Earth. The average positional accuracy of our imagery is less than 5m CE90.

Consistent, high resolution, all weather insights

Through a strategic constellation access agreement with Umbra, Maxar has dedicated capacity from satellites in Umbra’s synthetic aperture radar (SAR) imagery constellation, enabling Maxar® to directly integrate those images into Maxar’s portfolio of Earth Intelligence products. This combined offering represents the most advanced multisource geospatial intelligence solution for a wide range of defense, intelligence and commercial applications. Through this offering, customers can make critical decisions based on real-time insights from the highest resolution electro-optical and SAR data in the industry. Customers have access to ultra-high resolution (down to 25cm) SAR satellite imagery from Umbra. Maxar also leverages decades of SAR processing expertise and its 3D datasets to enhance processing of the SAR imagery, delivering even more actionable insights.



Skip straight to analysis with Maxar’s analysis-ready data (ARD). ARD is preprocessed time-series stacks of imagery that are aligned and produced at a set standard. Aligned image stacks from ARD provide increased usable content via localized metadata, more accurate feature extraction, faster processing, lower storage costs and homogenized inputs for analytic workflows.


ARD puts the user in control. Customize your imagery selection, order only what you need and deliver imagery directly to your cloud environment. Accessing Maxar’s highest quality satellite imagery in analysis-ready format is easy with an API. 

  • Select imagery based on only the criteria that’s important to your business. Choose your areas of interest, eliminate cloudy images, determine your stack depth and more. 
  • Visualize your selected imagery stacks on an interactive html viewer.  
  • Review usage estimates before placing an order.  
  • Order only the imagery you select, relatively align pixels using Maxar's proprietary Bundle Block Adjustment (BBA), and deliver GeoTIFFs and accompanying files to your preferred cloud environment. 
  • Access and interact with ARD imagery using Maxar’s Python-based SDK and CLI tools.

Geodata for the future

The telecommunication industry's fifth-generation network (5G) will rely on high-frequency spectrum to deliver increased speeds and network capacity, a signal so sensitive it can be blocked by the palm of your hand. That makes things a lot more complicated. How do you design or optimize for 5G when obstructions are so influential on signal propagation? Modern planning requires advanced geodata derived from the most current, high-resolution satellite imagery.
