5-meter high resolution CBERS-4 (P5M) image showing the intersection between City of Tshwane, Ekurhuleni and City of Johannesburg.
The China–Brazil Earth Resources Satellite 4 (CBERS-4), 5-meter high resolution panchromatic sensor’s (P5M) ability to capture the urban panoramic view with unprecedented visual clarity is quite invigorating. The panchromatic band captures built-up structures with astounding exactitude. Remarkably, this free and open dataset is not capacious and is quite easy to manipulate with standard image processing software packages. This gives CBERS-4 a distinctive advantage over other high-resolution datasets in the same class. CBERS-4 has a wide range of applications that range from as human settlements, water resources monitoring, agriculture, and vegetation monitoring and land degradation to mention but a few.
