    High-resolution optical images improve geological mapping in remote geothermal areas

    A group of researchers carried out a study on integrating remote sensing analysis with geological and geophysical fieldwork, over the Cerro Domuyo mountain in Patagonia-this led to the use of GeoEye-1 data, which proved to be invaluable, highly improving their understanding of the magmatic and tectonic evolution of this geothermal volcanic area.

    New open-source Python library improves rapid mapping services

    In emergency services, rapid response is paramount. ICube-SERTIT’s Rapid Mapping Service provides near real-time delivery of geo-information to help emergency services respond quickly to disasters such as flooding, fires and landslides. A new Python open-source library, called EOReader, speeds up this mapping response by enabling the easy opening of imagery from multiple satellite sensors, both optical and synthetic aperture radar (SAR).

    GeoEye-1 ESA archive

    The GeoEye-1 archive collection consists of GeoEye-1 products requested by ESA supported projects over their areas of interest around the world. The dataset regularly grows as ESA collects new products over the years. Panchromatic (up to 40 cm resolution) and 4-Bands (up to 1.65 m resolution) products are available. The 4-Bands includes various options such as Multispectral (separate channel for Blue, Green, Red, NIR1), Pan-sharpened (Blue, Green, Red, NIR1), Bundle (separate bands for PAN, Blue, Green, Red, NIR1), Natural Colour (pan-sharpened Blue, Green, Red), Coloured Infrared (pan-sharpened Green, Red, NIR1). The processing levels are: STANDARD (2A): normalised for topographic relief View Ready Standard (OR2A): ready for orthorectification View Ready Stereo: collected in-track for stereo viewing and manipulation Map-Ready (Ortho) 1:12,000 Orthorectified: additional processing unnecessary. Spatial coverage: Check the spatial coverage of the collection on a map available on the Third Party Missions Dissemination Service.
