Cartography. / April 29, 2009 /
The use of remote sensing data in map generation facilitated the mapping process practically in all areas (topographic, thematic mapping) and up-graded map products. Remote sensing data use in cartography made mapping process less expensive and more operational as compared with conventional technologies at the cost of reduced field observations and aerial survey.
The most important cartographic tasks achieved with remote sensing data are as follows:
- Generation (with use of supplementary data) and updating of topographic maps of all scales (from 1:1000000 to 1:2000);
- Updating of cadastre plans;
- Generation of thematic maps both natural-resources and socio-economic maps.
For purposes of cartography of all scale ranges there may be used remote sensing data of different spatial resolution: low and moderate (AVHRR/NOAA and MODIS/TERRA, in near future METEOR-M/KMSS spacecraft), high and very high resolution (RESURS-DK1, IKONOS, Quick-Bird, ALOS, etc).
ТThe technological scheme of generating a vector map of settlement.
Using the image data there are constructed vector layers: buildings, communication lines, hydrography, vegetation (others — on the customer’s request).
These layers superimposition yields finished product
