Airbus Strengthens Imagery Capabilities with Vision-1

Airbus has enlarged its high-resolution imagery portfolio following an agreement to leverage capacity from the S1-4 satellite built by Surrey Satellite Technology Limited (SSTL). This imagery from Vision-1 delivers full end-to-end imaging operations to Airbus’ customers. Vision-1 provides 0.9m resolution imagery in the panchromatic band and 3.5m in the multispectral bands (NIR, RGB), with a 20.8km swath width. These specifications are ideal for defence, security and agriculture applications, while the extra revisit opportunity further strengthens Airbus’ satellite fleet. “This new asset will reinforce our monitoring capabilities for sub-metre imaging and feed our OneAtlas digital platform to provide increased freshness,” said...

OceanWise Provides Mapping Data to Blue Marine Foundation

The Blue Marine Foundation, a charity dedicated to creating marine reserves and establishing sustainable models for fishing, has embarked on a ‘Big Data’ project which seeks to investigate how data can be used to support safety in inshore waters. OceanWise, who are marine data experts and provide a range of intelligent marine mapping and monitoring solutions, will provide the mapping data for situational awareness and to allow multiple sources of data to be integrated using location as the common link. The assembly of disparate datasets into a 'spatial data infrastructure' will inform safety and risk assessments, and allow preventative measures... (read more)

Working with the GIS Industry - Benefits of Research and Education

A key component of many MSc degrees offered in Universities in the UK – particularly those that fall under the heading of ‘vocational’ programmes – is the importance of external links – to what some of us might call the ‘real-world’. The reasons behind establishing these links are many, but include: to (a) bring outside expertise into the classroom through the provision of guest lectures; (b) provide a way to help students engage with practitioners in the discipline or profession; (c) broaden student horizons; (d) help students begin to network with professionals and practitioners; (e) provide opportunities for students to...

Unique 3D Habitat Map of the Great Barrier Reef

International aquatic remote sensing company EOMAP recently showcased its unique contribution to the world's first 3D habitat map of the Great Barrier Reef (GBR) at the International Forum on Satellite-Derived Bathymetry (SDB Day 2019) in Australia. The mapping project, titled ‘3D live habitats for the full extent of the Great Barrier Reef’, will for the first time provide maps of the predicted coral types and underwater landscape for the more than 3,000 reefs within the 350,000 square kilometres of the GBR. EOMAP’s cutting-edge technology provides essential data for this revolutionary project, in which the University of Queensland (UQ), Great Barrier Reef Marine Park... (read more)
