Airbus Defence and Space’s satellite imagery library, called One Atlas, is now available for general use.

The imagery should prove useful in the agriculture industry as a tool for farmers to keep track of changes on their property.

The service offers images with resolution of up to 1.5m globally, or 0.5m in the world’s top cities.

One Atlas can be used to determine coordinates of property boundaries with a high-resolution image for reference, or to track changes in forestry or a tree line year-to-year.

On larger properties, One Atlas could even be used to locate missing equipment (with some patience), or track the size or position of rivers and lakes.

Airbus says those who buy in will have image updates available at least every 12 months, with the ability to retain imagery from several years prior.

Because of this, One Atlas could provide one the best resources for satellite imagery, especially where Google updates less frequently and with lower resolution – usually rural areas.

Airbus Defence and Space head of intelligence business cluster Bernhard Brenner says the time saved on data collection will prove useful to agri-business owners.

"With One Atlas, we definitively reduce the barriers for agricultural clients to access our data," Brenner says.

"We take care of everything – updating, selecting, processing and hosting – all to make it easier, cheaper and faster for our customers."
