Geospatial information processing for quickbird satellite imagery

Grant number: LP0348906


Of the new generation of commercial high-resolution earth observation satellites, the Quickbird system with its 70cm resolution has greatest potential for metric applications. The capabilities of Quickbird imagery for digital mapping, GIS and geopositioning are, however, yet to be fully established and the models, procedures and computational systems required for higher-accuracy applications require further research. The aim of this project, which is a collaboration with SKM, is to develop the tools necessary to validate Quickbird imagery as a source for geospatial information collection, to develop the associated data processing systems to proof-of-concept stage and to experimentally verify..
