Compared to its predecessors, SPOT-5 satellite offered greatly enhanced capabilities, which provided additional cost-effective imaging solutions. The coverage offered by SPOT-5 was a key asset for applications such as medium-scale mapping (at 1:25 000 and 1:10 000 locally), urban and rural planning, oil and gas exploration, and natural disaster management. SPOT-5's other key feature was the unprecedented acquisition capability of the on-board HRS stereo viewing instrument, which could cover vast areas in a single pass. Stereo satellite imagery is vital for applications that call for 3D terrain modeling and computer environments, such as flight simulator databases, pipeline corridors, and mobile phone network planning.
