Rapid global surface model production

February 1st, 2019, Published in Articles: PositionIT

Using high-resolution 3D data, Vricon’s GeoRef solution allows analysts to automatically correlate multiple datasets with a high degree of geospatial accuracy in all dimensions and create actionable intelligence from disparate sources. The 3D surface models and precise digital elevations enhance GEOINT data, covering the globe to support preparation, rehearsal, and execution. These models provide a foundation to correlate information layers, while True Ortho provides lucidity into inaccessible and dense urban areas. Surface models can also help emergency services quickly compare post-disaster imagery with those taken before the event, to assist with recovery and rebuilding programmes. Telecommunications service providers need accurate geodata to improve their current networks, and to plan effectively for future expansion. Increasing demand for video, 5G and the Internet of Things requires denser networks, which in turn increases demand for accurate, high-resolution geodata. Vricon combines Saab’s 3D technology and know-how with DigitalGlobe’s archive which contains billions of square kilometres of high-quality commercial satellite imagery. The accurate photorealistic 3D products and elevation data is accessible via a visualisation platform and standard-based data formats.
