Remote Sensing (Mapping System for high resolution aerial photo, survey & monitoring) core business. What we can do next in 2009?


2009, new line, new distance, new challenge…

Mapping industry, now could take better position in huge business..I’ll explore what we can do for a better future..

Scientific and technical achievements of recent years in the area of space vehicles, technologies for processing, storage, interpretation and usage of acquired data many times extended the range and scope of tasks to be solved by satellite Earth remote sensing (ERS). The number of data consumers is growing, the space survey data are widely used not only for scientific and practical purposes but also in the daily life. Up-to-date ERS space vehicles operate on orbit, including optical-electronic vehicles of unparalleled super resolution such as WorldView-1 (50 cm) and GeoEye-1 (41 cm), radar satellites — TerraSAR-X, Cosmo-SkyMed, Radarsat-2. The constellation of 5 RapidEye satellites launched in August 2008 in terms of its performance specifications opens up fresh opportunities in the on-line space monitoring.

The growing volume of the ERS data market and increase in the number of users gave rise to brand new services providing for multi-user access to the data. These are first of all ImageConnect and ImageBuilder services. ImageConnect is a unique extension to GIS programs, which allows loading space imagery from QuickBird and WorldView-1 satellites to the user software environment directly from the operator’s archives (DigitalGlobe). MyFormosat service appeared in the past year is of special interest. It allows the customer to independently plan new surveys and acquire data from Formosat-2 high-resolution satellite. The main advantage of this service is fast response to survey orders (24 h). A MyFormosat service subscriber is provided with a unique possibility to book certain surveying capacities of the satellite.

The brand new information appeared during application of ERS data and GIS-technologies on site conditions, possibilities of space monitoring in different sectors of the national economy define the need for the system approach. Establishment of regional or industrial online space monitoring centers is a key to the complex solution of these tasks.


These are more industry we could take a place…
