In previous videos, we’ve talked about the size of a pixel—called spatial resolution—and the content of a pixel—called spectral resolution. Now we’ll discuss temporal resolution, which is how often a pixel is collected. Temporal resolution depends on three factors: Past collection, in the form of an image library assembled over the life of a satellite or constellation of satellites; Current image collection strategies, based on today’s needs and technical abilities; and Future Collection Capabilities, which inevitably change as the world changes and our needs evolve.

Explore how different types of satellite imagery, data layers, and analytics can build critical context to help you identify opportunities and make decisions with confidence.
Thousands of satellites, airplanes, helicopters, and drones collect images of our planet every day, but to determine which is best, you have to consider what you’re doing with that image.
In a 30 cm resolution image, you could determine if vehicles are pickup trucks, sedans, or convertibles, as well as their direction of travel.
How do you see the unseen? Advanced satellites like those in the Maxar constellation possess unique capabilities in the near-infrared and shortwave infrared ranges.
We are talking about Positional Accuracy! It's about how close a pixel is in relation to it true, know position on Earth.
