- Thirty years after SPOT-1 was launched on 22 February 1986 it was announced that SPOT satellites have covered the land area of the Earth more than 700 times, setting a world record for spatial observation. In July 2016, the American Landsat program will have achieved 44 years of earth observation. This brief article 30 Years of SPOT Data overviews both program's instrumentation.
