SPOT5 (Take5)

(updated version after correction of a 2 days error)

The table below provides the day number in SPOT5 (Take5) 5 days cycle for all the sites. You can find the overpass dates knowing that April 3rd, May 3rd, June 2nd, July 2nd, August 1th, September 5th are all Day 1 in the cycle (from these dates, you may count on your fingers, which luckily are have the same number per hand as the number of days per Take5 cycle...)

 

Regarding the name of the sites, which are not always self explanatory (we are not geographs), the best is to find the name of the site you are interested in the display here.

    Dear representatives of SPOT5 (Take 5) initiative,

    We represent Space Research Institute NASU and SSAU of Ukraine. Our team is taking part in SPOT5 (Take 5) initiative with our JECAM Psheniche test-site.
    It is good news that SPOT 5 images have been acquiring from the beginning of April.

    We have some additional questions about these activities and kindly ask you about quick response.

    1) As we understand from the calendar of SPOT5, next dates of acquisition are planned for Ukraine (April: 5, 10; 15; 20; 25, 30; May: 5; 10; 15; 20; 25, 30; June: 4, 9; 14; 19; 24; 29). Is it correct?
    2) When and how could we download Spot5 data? It’s very important, because we are planning in-situ surveys now and such satellite data would be extremely useful.

    Thank you in advance.
    Best regards.

      Dear Colleagues,
      yes, the dates you computed are correct (I checked April and May).

      Regarding the distribution of data, we intend to release the first data 2 months after the first images (around the 8th of June), and then, in routine, produce them three weeks after acquisition date. The processing is not based on an operational ground segment, so it is processed on a best effort basis.

      Olivier

    Bonjour Olivier,

    Would it be possible to know the time of day (hour:minute) for the image acquisitions over the Sacramento_Riv._USA site?

    Thank you.

    Cedric

      Hi Cedric,
      here was the overpass time (UTC) over Sacramento on April 21.
      2015-04-21 17:50:28
      SPOT5 overpass time will slowly drift earlier by 10 minutes until the end of the experiment.
      Cheers
      Olivier

    Hi Olivier,

    Thanks a lot. Very helpful.
    Just making sure I got it right: The total drift will be 10 min, meaning the overpass time of the last acquisition in September 2015 will be ~17:40 UTC. This is important for my application.

    Thanks,

    Cedric
