With 2.5 m resolution and a size of 27 km x 27 km, PAN-Fore and PAN-Aft data products allow the generation of DEMs and the fulfilment of mapping tasks up to 1:12,500 scale.

Data from the PAN-Aft camera, mounted with an along-track tilt of -5º compared to the +26º of the PAN-Fore camera, are recommended for the production of ortho images or monoscopic coverages. At the end of a pass, only monoscopic PAN-Fore data are available.
