Satellite Imagery
Subscription Services

Satellite imagery is a critical asset for mapping projects around the world. Its pixels and metadata have long been foundational to complete engineering, construction and many other mapping ventures.

If you have consistent demand for imagery, a large imagery user base, or may need imagery access on a 24/7 basis, then a satellite imagery subscription service is the solution for you. Subscription options provide substantial value and cost reductions because you only pay for what you consume, and at a fraction of the cost of purchasing image pixel data downloads. Furthermore, this option takes the worry out of managing and storing huge volumes of bulky data since it can be pulled down from the cloud when needed for offline analytics.

Mapping Services to Meet Your Needs

L3Harris Geospatial offers three main satellite imagery subscription services, which are outlined below. Contact us, and we can help you figure out which service best fit your needs.

Airbus OneAtlas
Subscription Service



Imaging satellites included in OneAtlas are the SPOT-6/-7 1.5 m and Pleiades-1 0.5 m. Airbus will add TerraSAR-X SAR and Pleiades Neo 0.3 m optical sensors in late 2020. While Maxar’s SecureWatch has high-resolution coverage globally, OneAtlas 0.5 m high-resolution imagery is mostly concentrated in urban or densely populated areas of the world, while rural areas are mostly at 1.5 m resolution. OneAtlas has quality terrain data since Airbus has global WorldDEM 12 m DEM coverage.

OneAtlas also has the advantage of offering OneAtlas Analytics which will allow users to perform things like vehicle counting, ship and aircraft detection, and powerful infrastructure and change detection.


Leverage our domain expertise to get the best geospatial data and imagery for your project.

Planet Explorer
Subscription Service



Planet has a very high frequency of image collections with its huge constellation of PlanetScope satellites, also known as Doves, which collect the entire surface of the earth daily at 3 m / 4 m resolution and 4-band multispectral bands. They also have a data archive going back to 2009 when the RapidEye constellation was launched.

Planet offers high-resolution imagery from its SkySat constellation which was 0.5 m resolution and 4 multispectral bands. Planet also has automated image processing functions such as orthorectification, radiometric corrections for sensor artifacts and transformation to at-sensor radiance, and top- and bottom-of-atmosphere corrections reduce spectral inconsistency across time and location. Like the other platforms, images can be compared against each other visually with side swipes or flickers. Planet Explorer offers its own API integrations with direct integration to ArcGIS and the open source geospatial platform QGIS.

Maxar SecureWatch
Subscription Service



Maxar’s subscription provides on-demand access to 0.5 m geospatial data, RADARSAT and SAR imagery. Maxar also offers WorldView-3, which at 0.3 m has the best commercially-available spatial resolution. Currently, Maxar has the largest archive holdings of high-resolution satellite imagery with 20 years of coverage (2000 to present). New images are added daily and there is an additional benefit of a customizable image alert service as images arrive into the platform.

The Maxar platform offers flexible access including online streaming and download, API and integrations with ArcGIS. As with the other platforms, all imagery is provided as 3-band natural color orthorectified base map. SecureWatch also allows users to task a satellite to collect a new image of any specific area of the world. Finally, SecureWatch has basic map annotations and cartographic functions.
