EARTH-i Brings DMC3 Constellation Imagery Comparisons To EO Conference

Geospatial and remote sensing topics spearhead the 2016 Remote Sensing & Photogrammetry Society (RSPSoc) conference, which runs from September 5th through 8th at the University of Nottingham in England.

In attendance is EARTH-i Ltd. who will be exhibiting the latest examples of 1 meter GSD satellite imagery from the DMC3 constellation, including a very high resolution image of the University of Nottingham itself. Alongside these new satellite images, Earth-i will also be carrying out a direct comparison between imagery captured by the DMC3 constellations and those taken by the ESA’s Sentinel 2A platform. This will demonstrate the level of additional detail and actionable data achieved through higher resolution imagery and the commercial potential it offers.
The theme for this year’s conference is ‘Earth Observation for Knowledge Discovery’. Earth-i will demonstrate how the very high resolution capabilities of the DMC3 Constellation provides companies, governments and non-profit organisations with actionable data to enable more effective information solutions. Chief Scientist, Peter Hausknecht will be on hand to provide visitors with an insight into how data analysis techniques can be applied to produce valuable information that meets their requirements and objectives.

According to Richard Blain, the CEO of Earth-i, visitors to the EARTH-i stand will be able to see—first-hand—the advanced capabilities that the company brings to this market segment and the significant advantages of using very high resolution imagery. By directly comparing data from the DMC3 Constellation with wide area 10m imagery, it is possible to see how the two systems integrate and what occurs when zooming in (see images above).
