ICEYE shares nearly 18,000 satellite image archive under Creative Commons License
Finnish New Space leader ICEYE has announced access to ICEYE’s Public Archive, containing nearly 18,000 images from ICEYE satellites. The ICEYE Public Archive includes radar imagery in various imaging modes taken with ICEYE’s SAR satellite constellation between mid-2019 and now. The ICEYE Public Archive consists of preview images from around the world, which are released under CC BY-NC 4.0 license, allowing for non-commercial use.
“The ICEYE SAR satellite constellation is here for the global community of decision makers, data users, and more, to improve our shared world around us all,” said Rafal Modrzewski, CEO and Co-founder of ICEYE. “The ICEYE Public Archive opens up a unique view of the world, which we invite you to explore together with us.”
The ICEYE Public Archive is provided as a downloadable file through the ICEYE website, showing the locations and time of imaging for each thumbnail in the Archive. After downloading the file, users can open it with their Geographic Information System (GIS) program of choice, such as Google Earth Pro or QGIS, making exploring the world of radar satellite imaging accessible for all.
“Every day, ICEYE provides unique access to data and information for our customers that hasn’t been available before,” said Steve Young, Vice President, Business Development and Sales, ICEYE.
“Our customers and the global community of Earth observation data explorers now have access to some of the imagery that has been collected in the prior years by ICEYE’s SAR satellite constellation. The ICEYE Public Archive provides additional inspiration for what can be achieved in the future.”
The ICEYE Public Archive is available to download today. The Public Archive does not contain the full catalog of ICEYE imagery, as customer exclusivity applies in many cases.
The ICEYE SAR data associated with the preview images presented in the Public Archive can be ordered in the ICEYE standard image formats by following the order process described in the ICEYE Product Guide. ICEYE sales will assist new customers to set up an account for image orders.

Nanohmics to test ultra-compact hyperspectral imager on the ISS
Houston TX (SPX) Oct 08, 2020
Imagine a compact sensor in low Earth orbit powerful enough to capture the unique spectral signatures of ground objects, yet small enough to hold in your hand. Nanohmics, a leading-edge research and development laboratory based in Austin, TX, is working with researchers at the University of Maryland and the NASA Langley Research Center to fly the world’s smallest spectrograph for demonstration on the International Space Station (ISS).
Spectral imaging is used in a variety of applications, includin … read more
