RapidEye Collects One Billion km² of Satellite Imagery In Just Over A Year

RapidEye announced today that it has imaged one billion square kilometers of the surface of the Earth since it became commercially operational on February 4, 2009.
All of the data collected over the last 14 months is available in the RapidEye Library which contains multiple datasets including the freshest images imaged just a few minutes or hours earlier. The library is continuously growing as new images are downloaded from RapidEye's satellite constellation daily. The newest coverage
of the Somalian-Ethiopian border was acquired by RapidEye 1 (Tachys) on April 7, 2010 at 8 A.M. UTC and made the collection of one billion square kilometers complete. One billion square kilometers represents approximately seven times the Earth's landmass.
