Feature Extraction & Classification Expertise
What kind of planes land and take off on the runway? How can we secure the airport?
Is the airport being maintained or being left to deteriorate? What sort of neighborhoods
surround the airport? These are just a few of the questions our geospatial experts
answer for clients in the defense and intelligence industry.
Expertise in Stereo Imagery and Precise Airport Mapping
Through our constellation of high resolution satellites, we collect stereo imagery
for airports and then extract detailed 3-dimensional vector information from this
imagery. Our experts photo interpret and convert stereo imagery into 3D airport
databases, terrain databases, and obstacle databases. The feature maps they create
are then analyzed by DigitalGlobe geospatial experts to infer tactical or strategic intelligence
about those facilities.
While it is vital that we know what imagery to collect when monitoring an airport,
it is equally critical that our experts have the actionable intelligence they need
to analyze the terrain, whether they intend to occupy the facility or identify where
threats exist in surrounding areas. Our team of geospatial experts, knowledgeable
in aeronautical procedures and standards, has map more than 3,000 commercial and
military airports around the world.
DigitalGlobe 3D Airports
DigitalGlobe 3D Airports is a family of value-added geospatial products that captures
precise spatial models of domestic and international airports, including the natural
elevation of surrounding terrain and man-made obstacles. DigitalGlobe 3D Airport Maps
may be used to plan, fly, or support aircraft and helicopter operations.
