Processing 40cm Products at European Space Imaging's DAF

European Space Imaging can now process 40cm imagery from WorldView satellites at its local Direct Access Facility (DAF) based near Munich, Germany. Imagery at 40cm is available from archive data or for new tasking orders from the WorldView constellation. The above image of London illustrates the benefits of the higher-resolution imagery. As the pixels are smaller, an image at 40cm is clearly smoother and provides more visible information. The image exposes more detail which makes it easier to differentiate between objects. Also colour variation is better defined, said product order manger, Tine Flingelli, after running tests on this near to... (read more)

Demand for AUSPOS Processing System Continues after US Shutdown

During the US shutdown, around half of the more than 5,500 GPS datasets processed with the aid of Geoscience Australia’s AUSPOS global positioning system were from institutions and individuals based in the United States. Since that time, almost one third of the 3,200 processing requests have come from North America. AUSPOS is a service that allows users to submit logged GPS data to Geoscience Australia’s website where it is processed with respect to a global GPS tracking network providing coordinates with centimetre-level or better accuracy. AUSPOS is used extensively by the Australian geospatial, mining and construction industries to establish precise... (read more)

Point Density and the Challenge in Processing Multi-source Lidar Data

Over the past few years, Lidar systems have become established as a leading technology for rapid collection of high density 3D point cloud. The advent of these systems has reduced the cost and increased the availability of accurate 3D data for diverse applications such as terrain mapping, environmental monitoring, transportation planning, emergency response, 3D city modelling, heritage documentation and forest mapping. In order to meet the needs of these applications, collected point cloud should be processed to extract useful information. Point density, which is an indication of the inter-point spacing, is one of the key data characteristics that should be... (read more)

Correlator3D Chosen by ING Robotic Aviation for Image Post-processing

SimActive, a Canadian developer of photogrammetry software, has been selected by ING Robotic Aviation, one of Canada’s leaders in robotic aircraft solutions. Along with using SimActive’s software for internal post-processing requirements, ING Robotic Aviation is recommending it as the de-facto software with its robotic aircraft systems. Ian Glenn, CEO of ING Robotic Aviation, stated his company is extremely impressed with the maturity of the product compared with the other options on the market. Correlator3D integrates well with their systems, and the software’s results speak for themselves, especially for real-world applications. Having been around for over a decade now, Correlator3D has...

Improved Accuracy in L1 Post-processing for Zeno GNSS/GIS handhelds

An improved L1 post-processing kernel developed by Leica Geosystems built on the latest GNSS technology is one of the main improvements to the Leica Zeno GIS. Leica Zeno GIS users can expect a better and more reliable L1 GNSS performance without the need to upgrade their existing hardware. The improved L1 post-processing kernel provides considerable improvement in code post-processing accuracy in all environments. With the EasyIn process the simplest dataflow between field and office is supported. Zeno Office simultaneously checks in features and GNSS raw data, automatically post-processes GNSS observations and updates feature vertices to the most accurate location in... (read more)

Monitoring 3D Urban Growth: An Innovative Approach Integrating Lidar Processing with Machine Learning

Automated measurement of the third dimension of urban growth is a crucial requirement for future urban planning and monitoring. Airborne Lidar is increasingly being used to produce regular time-based data over metropolitan areas. However, the current solutions ignore the specific needs of urban planners, are complicated to run and fail to address the problem of monitoring 3D urban growth over time at building scale. To address the current challenges, two possible solutions have been developed into an integrated procedure, as outlined in this article. Urban planners want to automatically estimate all three dimensions and model the changes to buildings, the... (read more)

Earth Observation Data and Image Processing for High-level Humanitarian Support

An Efficient Approach for Estimating Refugee Camp Populations
Over the past decade, the world has witnessed a steady increase in the number of people forced away from their homes by natural disasters or political unrest. They often end up in camps that hold tens of thousands of refugees. The camps are supported by non-governmental organisations (NGOs) that provide food, shelter and medical assistance. To manage their operations, NGOs and other agencies need to know how many people are in a given camp. This article explains how a combination of high-resolution satellite Earth observation data and image processing software provides an efficient approach for estimating camp populations. The refugee... (read more)
