    Near Real-Time Maritime Mapping Using VHR Optical Imagery

    The high resolution imagery and revisits offered by the latest VHR optical satellites provide information that is both timely and actionable to government agencies and commercial companies working in the maritime sector. European Space Imaging together with DigitalGlobe has been developing the use of VHR optical imagery in the maritime sector – this webinar demonstrates how imagery and value-added services have been implemented in: near real-time emergency mapping; vessel detection and identification; and monitoring of illegal activity (pollution, fisheries and border control).

    PhotoSat's Engineering Quality WorldView Topographic Mapping

    Vancouver-based PhotoSat has developed a technology to produce highly accurate topographic base maps. The geophysicists at PhotoSat have applied signal enhancement, noise attenuation and image matching from oil and gas exploration seismic data processing to produce highly accurate topographic base maps from stereo satellite photos.

    Globalization and Protecting Our Shared Global Heritage From a Geospatial Perspective

    There is major global interest in the issue of archaeological site looting, with new reports from the Middle East nearly every day about stolen and recovered objects. What specialists have not done, however, is quantify in a scientifically valid format the total amount of site looting in each country affected (Egypt, Syria, Libya). In addition, no one has successfully tracked the looting networks from the ground to the owner's homes/museums. The best way to do this is to use high-resolution geospatial datasets. This webinar discusses a methodology for the mapping of looting pits using a combination of new and archived imagery from DigitalGlobe, as well as additional datasets.

    Satellite Derived Habitat Mapping

    Effective management of the world's coastal zone is becoming increasingly important as pressure from population expansion and natural resource exploitation grows. This pressure is only too evident in one of the fastest growing economies in the world, Abu Dhabi. In early 2013 a consortium led by Proteus was awarded the contract to produce habitat maps for all of Abu Dhabi Emirate using DigitalGlobe WorldView-2 imagery. DigitalGlobe's WorldView-2 satellite is unrivalled in delivering high-resolution multispectral imagery using eight spectral sensors at 2-meter resolution. This has allowed a wide variety of habitats to be mapped in great detail with lower costs and environmental impact than previous methods. The outcome for Abu Dhabi government is an ecological baseline survey for focusing conservation efforts and managing sustainable development. This webinar focuses on the methodologies that are being deployed and provides examples of the maps that have been produced so far.

    Mapping the United States and its Territories Just Got Better for 2014

    In response to ever-increasing demand for recent and relevant imagery of the United States, DigitalGlobe launched an unprecedented program to update all 50 U.S. States and U.S. territories on an annual basis. Leveraging DigitalGlobe's constellation of satellites, this commitment to a regular USA refresh provides timely and relevant imagery for more accurate decision making, and benefits anyone needing geospatial information of any location in the United States.

    DigitalGlobe Imagery Expedites Mineral Exploration in Africa

    The resource sector boom on the African continent demands accurate, high-resolution geological map data for mineral exploration. Existing geological data is generally outdated, coarse scale and often hard to come by. Southern Mapping Company, through its satellite-based mineral mapping unit, recently demonstrated how the use of 8-band WorldView-2 data was able to enhance spectral based image analysis of chrome deposits in Madagascar. The WorldView-2 data was able to detect outcrops not seen on coarser imagery thereby enhancing the prospecting phase in situ.

    Automated Technology Solutions Using Multispectral High-Resolution Satellite Images

    Over the last few years, the constellation of very high resolution satellites has significantly increased. Volumes of highly detailed information increase daily and, as a result, customers' needs for very high resolution data are also increasing. The automation of data processing and analysis has become critical. Sovzond Company, with more than 10 years experience automating solution implementations for data processing and analysis, discuss some of their project solutions.

    Geology, Exploration and WorldView-3 SWIR

    Mineral exploration for both ore deposits and hydrocarbons (oil/gas) depends on finding patterns that point to a profitable deposit. The actual material of interest, whether it is gold, oil, or something else, is not detectable by imagery and optical remote sensing. Instead, the exploration geologist must understand models that describe how these economic deposits form. Using these models, the geologist seeks clues in the environment that point to a deeply buried mother lode. Optical remote sensing, particularly in the shortwave infrared (SWIR), can reveal very specific clues that the geologist needs for successful mineral exploration. WorldView-3 (WV3) data will fill a previously unoccupied niche for mineral exploration because of its 8 SWIR bands and high spatial resolution. A NASA satellite, called ASTER, had SWIR bands similar to those on WV3. It was widely used by exploration geologists, and likely all known areas of interest in the world were collected by ASTER before the failure of its SWIR sensor a few years ago. Compared to ASTER's 30 meter pixels, however, WV3 (3.7 meter SWIR) has dramatically better spatial resolution. This webinar focuses on optical remote sensing methods for seeking environmental clues that can lead to finding economic mineral deposits. Spectral matching verses indices.
