SPOT 5 - Take 5

SPOT 5 - Take 5 is an joint project by french aerospace organisation CNES and ESA. At the end of the life cycle of the SPOT 5 sensor, data sets from April to September 2015 will be provided for selected study sites at temporal resolution comparable to Sentinel-2 to allow method and algorithm development for Sentinel-2 data exploitation. One of the selected sites is the study area of the projects PhenoS and DynaC.
