Satellite-derived bathymetry for aquaculture

British engineering and scientific consultancy, BMT, is using satellite-derived bathymetry from TCarta as a critical dataset in the selection of new fish farming sites in the Arabian Gulf. It is also using the geospatial company’s Marine Habitat Maps, which differentiate the surface compositions of the seafloor around the island in waters to approximately 10 m […]

Software improves DEMs and orthophotos

The new PhotoModeler 2018.0 release offers faster processing, robust Coded Targets, and gridded DEM export, as well as orthophoto improvements. PhotoModeler UAS 2018.0 adds the ability to export gridded digital elevation models (DEMs) when creating orthophotos. Gridded DEMs can be exported as sparse XYZ text files, or as GeoTIFF files (16-bit integer or 32-bit float). Several […]

Adding geospatial content to images

The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) seeks public comment on the GML in JPEG 2000 (GMLJP2) version 2.1 Candidate Encoding Standard. The candidate encoding standard defines how the Geography Markup Language (GML) is used within JPEG 2000 images and other gridded coverage data for adding geospatial content to imagery, such as the geographic coordinates of the image, annotations, or references […]
