In-flight stereo products from the PAN-Fore and PAN-Aft sensors, which are mounted with a fixed stereo angle of 31º, allow the generation of DEMs and the fulfilment of mapping tasks up to 1:12,500 scale.

For the production of ortho images or monoscopic coverages, data from the camera with the smaller along-track tilt are recommended. In the most commonly used configuration the PAN-Aft camera has an along-track tilt of -5º compared to the +26º of the PAN-Fore camera.

The standard delivery time for small and medium sized orders varies between three and ten working days.

Data from areas outside the European footprint, gathered either by other stations or through the on-board solid state recorder, are also available via GAF.
