    Life Beyond the Pixel: Geospatial Big Data

    What if you could not only see the world on a daily basis but also understand it? Geospatial Big Data converts millions of square kilometers of imagery to structured information that can be queried, indexed, and leveraged to provide deeper insight and understanding.

    FirstLook: Be the First to Know

    FirstLook is an online subscription service for emergency management that provides fast, web-based access to pre- and post-event imagery of world disasters delivered to almost any desktop or web-based platform. DigitalGlobe's FirstLook service leverages our constellation of high-resolution satellites to rapidly task, process, and deliver relevant information to our online platform. FirstLook Plus integrates an additional layer of information to identify key features to aid responders by making analysis more efficient. Learn how DigitalGlobe leverages the power of crowdsourcing and machine learning to extract key features, as well as the most relevant pixels from imagery.

    From Pixels to Mission

    This webinar provides a basic understanding of the relationship between source data and source data preparation in a military/simulation and training context. During the webinar, you will learn about: Pre-requisites for building virtual applications for military/simulation and training; contemporary military/simulation workflow from satellite data to virtual training; tools available to increase the process from acquiring the source data to the training session; end-user systems and integrating the source data; the difference between live virtual and constructive simulation and the respective impact on the source data; the current work-flow from satellite data to military simulation and training systems; and the importance of correlated terrain-databases in an LVC environment.

    DigitalGlobe's FirstLook +Insight: Online Subscription Service for Emergency Management

    FirstLook gets priority tasking of DigitalGlobe's industry leading satellite constellation, which takes precedence in image collection during natural disasters, man-made disasters, political unrest situations, and human interest events. In the event of a catastrophe, insurance companies need to help their customers recover from the unexpected. Although you cannot control the weather, you can control the way you respond to it. Using FirstLook +Insight for damage assessment allows you to immediately understand your exposure to a particular event and be more proactive about communicating impact to property to your customers.

    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).

    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.

    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.

    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.
