    Vegetation Analysis in the Desert Using Satellite Imagery

    Proteus was asked to lead a team using WorldView-2 satellite imagery to inventory tree plantations. Image processing techniques were deployed using all eight WorldView-2 multispectral bands plus one panchromatic band, with an emphasis on the mid-infrared spectra. This multi-step processing was able to depict all trees greater than 1 square meter in size, and distinguish several tree species by their individual canopies. This project demonstrates the viability of using very high-resolution multispectral data to establish a baseline inventory of tree type and health within diverse forest plantations. This tree mapping technique can be applied to create forest inventories of other species elsewhere in the world.

    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.

    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.
