SPOT 6 Mali

First Contract for Astrium Services to Deliver SPOT 6 National Mosaic in Mali


IGN France International (IGN FI), the subsidiary of IGN, France's national survey and mapping agency, won a bid in October 2012 to revise
1:200 000 topographic maps of Mali and support IGM's modernization effort.


I n November 2012, Astrium Services kicked off a campaign - before the satellite had even completed in-orbit checkout - to acquire SPOT 6 imagery of the whole of Mali during the dry season, thus avoiding the period of sandstorms in the desert and Sahel regions, as well as the cloud cover of the rainy season.
