Abstract

Current EU agricultural monitoring and control programmes make use of remote sensing data as an additional spatial information level. In particular SPOT 1-4 data have been extensively used thanks to their quality and service provided. The major volume of data ordered mainly relates to the Control with Remote Sensing programme. This is due to the fact that owing to its operational nature, this programme has a specific constraint for successful image acquisition. The programming function and service quality of SPOT 1-4 data have proven to be extremely valid in this context. Despite the foreseen launches of satellites acquiring very-high resolution data, the SPOT 5 programme is expected to continue the success of other SPOT programmes, as the application areas remain relatively different. However, its success will also be related to pricing, modernisation of data delivery, and product flexibility.
