The state of Kentucky purchased a statewide satellite image map produced by SPOT Image, Reston, Va. The product is licensed for use by state, county and local government agencies, the state school system, and to provide Internet display for the public.

The Kentucky statewide coverage map is created from recent black and white 10 meter resolution SPOT satellite imagery processed to a high degree of map accuracy, and formatted for use in desktop mapping and geographic information systems (GIS). SPOT USA Select programs offer complete coverage of the lower 48 United States, providing low cost and broad access to large area image databases.
