Erdas announced today that its Imagine geospatial and LPS photogrammetric tools support WorldView-1 satellite products.
WorldView-1 is a panchromatic imaging system owned and operated by Digital Globe. It was launched in 2007 to provide detailed imagery'down to a half-meter resolution'for map creation and image analysis, Erdas officials said.
Users in the military, public safety, and state and local government sectors will be able to integrate satellite data with geospatial intelligence, according to Erdas.
'Commercial satellite imagery, such as that generated by WorldView-1, has been consumed at a rapidly increasing rate for Department of Defense, intelligence and civil applications,' said Tom Lobonc, director of photogrammetry and defense products for Erdas. The company added support for WorldView-1 imagery so that Erdas users could benefit from the pairing of high-resolution, high-accuracy satellite stereo imagery with the company's geospatial tools, he said.More information
