High-Resolution Satellogic Imagery Now Available Through the Descartes Labs Platform
Jan 5, 2022 · 2 min read
Today, we’re excited to announce a new partnership with Satellogic that brings sub-meter, high-frequency satellite imagery to the Descartes Labs Platform. With 17 satellites and counting, Satellogic is capable of providing up to four revisits each day for any location on Earth, adding critical context and source data for any geospatial solution.
As one of the only sub-meter imagery providers capable of providing daily updates at an affordable price point, Satellogic plans to extend its offering into the future with over 100 operational satellites by the end of 2023 and over 300 by the end of 2025.
Satellogic data fulfills the need for an up-to-date premium optical data source that can be collected quickly and loaded onto the DL Platform to enhance any analytical solution. Customers can access the data seamlessly as part of their workflow and turn high-quality imagery into powerful analytics without the typical data management headache.
Potential applications for Satellogic data include:
- “Tip-and-cue” workflows with complementary sensors to provide detailed views of land-use change
- High fidelity field delineation and crop health monitoring
- Enhanced spectral analysis for near-mine exploration
- Global facility activity monitoring with intraday revisit
- Data fusion with SAR, geolocation, and other optical datasets

The Satellogic constellation includes sub-meter multispectral and 29-band hyperspectral on every satellite, providing a rich dataset that can be used on its own or as a fusion layer for the 100+ datasets available through the DL Platform. Satellogic’s data can be selected on a per-scene or per square kilometer basis or collected on-demand for custom imagery over any area of interest.
Additionally, by exposing R&D access through our internal science team, Descartes Labs can assist customers by testing out use cases before purchase commitments are made in order to remove the uncertainty that often surrounds large imagery investments.
