CEOS Instrument: Ball Global Imaging System 2000

Instrument:BGIS 2000
Agency: Digital Globe
Mission: QuickBird-2
Type:High resolution optical imager
Description:High-quality satellite imagery for map creation, change detection, and image analysis.
Spatial Resolution: Panchromatic: 61 centimeter (2 ft) Ground Sample Distance (GSD) at nadir, Multispectral: 2.4 meter (8 ft) GSD at nadir
Swath Width: Nominal swath width: 16.5 kilometers at nadir Accessible ground swath: 544 km centered on the satellite ground track (to ~30░ off-nadir) Areas of interest, Single Area: 16.5 km x 16.5 km, Strip: 16.5 km x 115 km
Wavebands: Panchromatic: 445 to 900 nm. Multispectral: Blue: 450 - 520 nm, Green: 520 - 600 nm, Red: 630 - 690 nm, Near-IR: 760 - 900 nm.
Technology: High resolution optical imager
Description: Imaging Vis/IR radiometer whose characteristics are stressed towards spatial resolution (typically <30 m). Spectral coverage in bands of Vis and NIR (0.4-1.3 Ám). Number of channels can be small (extreme: one, i.e. panchromatic) or very large (hyperspectral) separated in-field (array detectors) or by a spectrometer, or a combination of both. Channel bandwidths from 0.5 Ám (PAN) to 5 nm (hyperspectral). Applicable only in LEO.
