Technologies for Value-Added Processing of Remote Sensing Data. / February 9, 2009 /Remote sensing data enable obtaining operational and objective information on underlying surface, natural and man-made objects, the environmental conditions, emergencies and natural events.
The remote sensing methods have significant advantages over conventional in-situ methods and airborne facilities in terms of instantaneous viewing of vast territories including remote and inaccessible regions as well as taking images of objects and territories of interest at regular intervals. Unique capabilities of satellite imaging in various regions of the electromagnetic spectrum allow for digital multi-band imaging, thermal IR imaging as well as all-weather imaging over radio region in cases of continuous cloudiness that is rather common over the Russian territory.
Remote sensing data provides geosciences with new possibilities for different research activities. Satellite observing facilities provide unique data needed for studying the Earth’s ecosystems and anthropogenic factors affecting them, satellite data has a great potential for economical activity and nature management.
By now there has been gathered worldwide a large fund (million terabytes) of digital satellite images that cover the Earth’s surface totally and considerable parts of regions – with multiple coverage.
For years the NTs OMZ has been engaged in research efforts on application of remotely-sensed data to various thematic tasks. The techniques developed for satellite environmental monitoring based on different resolution data from the Russian and foreign spacecraft have been implemented through the soft hardware using public geoinformation packages like ERDAS Imagine, ENVI, ArcGIS, Microstation, MapInfo, and others.
Amongst the remote sensing tasks, the main areas are as follow:
Consumers may be offered with thematically processed image data on any region required in the following forms:
