Satellite imagery capturing

Digital photos are captured by so called optical satellites. A satellite takes multiple images at the same time in different spectral (colours) bands. Some of the images are made with a very wide band (greyscale or panchromatic). Other recordings consist of several multispectral colours and narrow bands. A range of pictures taken by different spectral bands are merged into one image. The images will show details which can be used for further research.The usuability of a satellite image can be influenced by clouds. Therefore, the success of optical tasking is not guaranteed. A maximum percentage of cloud cover on an image is maintained by a number of satellite contractors.
