10 Satellites Free Images, High Resolution Satellites Images Free Download

Most GIS and remote sensing specialists are ignorant of rich websites that provide free quality satellite images. So now Just for you bring to you top-notched valuable researched sources of free satellite imagery  for all researchers from some relevant space agencies around the globe.

1. VITO Vision

VITO Vision is a coarse resolution satellite best adapted for large scale applications. It offers free satellite images which map out the Earth surface’s vegetation patterns. They are SPOT-Vegetation, PROBA-V and METOP. It has a comprehensible interface, but it takes quite an effort to create an account in it.
2. DigitalGlobe Free Product Samples

Free satellite imagery samples can also be found in DigitalGlobe, which ranks as the largest and sharpest commercial satellite data supplier in the world. DigitalGlobe has a reputation, delivering on their promise on imagery view beyond the human eye with sophisticated high-resolution satellites.


If you only want coastal data, there’s no better place to go than NOAA’s Digital Coast. Simply define your choice of interest and select from the range of free satellite imagery dataset such as infrared, radar and true color composite to download. You shall as well get imagery, land cover, elevation, socio-economic and benthic data.


Looking for land cover data and land cover changes around the world? Global Land Cover Facility encompassing both geologic, agriculture, hydrologic, vegetation, and urban areas on the earth’s surface.Landcover.org is the best place to look for land cover data satellites such as MODIS, AVHRR and Landsat satellite imagery.

Blackbridge provides these specific satellites for Canadians only while Airbus Defense Systems provides for the rest of the world.Sample data can be downloaded in some of the locations below; Free RapidEye Data from BlackBridge Airbus Defense and Space Gallery Home Airbus Defense & Space Sample Imagery Web Viewer Click for More

6. The National Map Viewer and Download Platform

NaturalEarth Data provides cultural, physical and basemap data at a global scale specially fitted for Cartographers. Constructed with the support of North American Cartographic Information Society (NACIS), users can download global free GIS data in public domain allowing you the privilege to modify and share data at will. 

10. Bhuvan Indian Geo-Platform of ISRO

For two decades ago, India has been emerging strongly in the technology of satellite remote sensing after it launched the Indian Remote Sensing (IRS 1A) satellite in 1998. The state of the art data platform,Bhuvan Indian Geo-Platform was built for only Indian Use. All the satellites are Indians and include Cartosat, OceanSat, ResourceSat and IMS-1. Some data imagery can however be downloaded from outside India. CartoDem Version -3R1 is available for SAARC countries, Global Coverage and Climate products for North Indian Ocean. It is also provides 3 D and 2 D Images.
