SCANEX is the only company in Russia that has licensing agreements with the world's top remote sensing operators, including the SPOT, FORMOSAT, EROS, UK-DMC2, and RADARSAT satellites series as well as UniScan ground stations.

A database of images of Russia made from space has reached more than 3.5 million pictures, a representative of Russia's SCANEX Research and Development Center told RIA Novosti on Thursday.

"A unique archive of the space images of territories of Russia consists of more than 3.5 million scenes. The volume of the received and stored information hasreached 400,000 gigs," she said.

According to the representative, the company started to archive its own Earth remote sensing data in 2004, when the UniScan ground stations network made it possible to receive space information throughout the entire territory of Russia.

The archive contains very high-definition satellite images, which is widely used in Russia and globally via the catalogs of international satellite data providers.

SCANEX Research and Development Center is Russia's leading remote sensing company providing a full range of services from acquisition to Earth observation space images processing.

SCANEX is the only company in Russia that has licensing agreements with the world's top remote sensing operators, including the SPOT, FORMOSAT, EROS, UK-DMC2, and RADARSAT satellites series as well as UniScan ground stations.

A significant portion of the most recent data in the archive, received in 2013 and 2014, is a series of images made by the SPOT 5/6 satellite from the Airbus DS company.
