    Satellite Derived Bathymetry: Methods and Results

    DigitalGlobe's WorldView-2 is the first high-resolution multispectral satellite to provide eight spectral sensors at 2-meter resolution, enabling it to see further into the water and support bathymetric studies around the globe. Remote sensing of the shallow ocean floor has become much clearer as a result of the additional spectral bands, including Coastal Blue. This webinar demonstrates satellite-based technology, developed at DigitalGlobe to determine water depth in shallow coastal environment. The webinar highlights capability and limitation learned from numerous validation results, where we compare depths derived from WorldView-2 imagery with LIDAR and acoustic data. The comparison was performed across representative sites in the Bahamas and Caribbean, covering diverse benthic habitat ranging from bright sand to dark algae, in clear and turbid waters.

    ComputaMaps: Planning the Next Generation of Wireless Networks

    Geodata is based on information digitized from maps and photos. The resolution of a data set is the pixel size of its raster elements. Geodata can be output at virtually any resolution but, unless the source imagery and related mapping data is at equal or higher resolution, accuracy is limited.

    The Importance of Surface Reflectance for the Analysis of Optical Very High Spatial Resolution Images

    The analysis of very high spatial resolution imagery is too often limited to the sole use of pixel digital numbers which do not accurately describe the observed targets between various collections due to the effects of changing illumination, viewing geometries, and atmospheric conditions. This webinar illustrates, both qualitatively and quantitatively, that not only is surface reflectance necessary to consistently and efficiently analyze satellite imagery, but also that the angular information of the acquisitions should not be neglected as it can provide unique features on the scenes being analyzed.

    ABACO: A Land Knowledge Management System for Agriculture and Cadastre

    Abaco's agriculture and territory platform is one of the most established systems used across Municipalities and Paying Agencies in Europe and is rapidly being adopted throughout the rest of the world. Abaco's technology leverages a decade's worth of DigitalGlobe imagery, in addition to its efficient Cloud computing technologies, to provide affordable, all-in-one, management solutions to hundreds of central and local public administrations as well as municipalities, farming cooperatives and taxing authorities.

    Proteus: Satellite Derived Seabed Mapping Products

    Satellite Derived Bathymetry Seabed Classification is not a new concept. Since the first remote sensing satellites orbited the earth, various techniques have been applied to try to accurately map sea and lakebeds - with little success. In the past few years, the consortium of Proteus, EOMAP and DigitalGlobe has successfully worked together to create satellite derived water-mapping products that are affordable, fast and accurate. The focus of this webinar is to share information on the process and results to date from live projects carried out around the world.
