European Cities: Cartosat-1 Euro-Maps 3D DSMs and Ortho Images
ESA is pleased to announce that the Cartosat-1 Euro-Maps 3D Digital Surface Model (DSM) and ortho image products collection on European cities has been opened to users in the framework of Earthnet’s Third Party Mission Programme.
Data - Data Description
European Cities: Cartosat-1 Euro-Maps 3D
A large number of European cities are covered by this dataset; for each city you can find one or more Cartosat-1 ortho image products and one or more Euro-Maps 3D DSM tiles clipped to the extent of the ortho coverage. The Euro-Maps 3D DSM is a homogeneous, 5 m spaced Digital Surface Model semi-automatically derived from 2.5 m Cartosat-1 in-flight stereo data with a vertical accuracy of 10 m. The very detailed and accurate representation of the surface is achieved by using a sophisticated and well adapted algorithm implemented on the basis of the Semi-Global Matching approach. The final product includes several pixel-based quality and traceability layers: The dsm layer (*_dsm.tif) contains the elevation heights as a geocoded raster file The source layer (*_src.tif) contains information about the data source for each height value/pixel The number layer (*_num.tif) contains for each height value/pixel the number of IRS-P5 Cartosat-1 stereo pairs used for the generation of the DEM The quality layer (*_qc.tif) is set to 1 for each height/pixel value derived from IRS-P5 Cartosat-1 data and which meets or exceeds the product specifications The accuracy vertical layer (*_acv.tif) contains the absolute vertical accuracy for each quality controlled height value/pixel. The ortho image is a Panchromatic image at 2.5 m resolution. The following table defines the offered product types.

CartoSat-1 archive and Euro-Maps 3D Digital Surface Model
CartoSat-1 (also known as IRS-P5) archive products are available as PAN-Aft (backward), PAN-Fore (forward) and Stereo (PAN-Aft and PAN-Fore). Sensor Products Type Resolution (m) Coverage (km x km) System or radiometrically corrected Ortho corrected (DN) Neustralitz archive Global archive PAN PAN-Aft (backward) PAN-Fore (forward) Stereo (PAN-Aft+PAN-Fore) Panchromatic 2.5 27 x 27 X X 2007 - 2016 2005 - 2019 Note: Resolution 2.5 m. - Coverage 27 km x 27 km. System or radiometrically corrected. For Ortho corrected products, if unavailable, user has to supply ground control information and DEM in suitable quality, For Stereo ortho corrected: only one of the datasets will be ortho corrected. Euro-Maps 3D is a homogeneous, 5 m spaced digital surface model (DSM) semi-automatically derived from 2.5 m in-flight stereo data provided by IRS-P5 CartoSat-1 and developed in cooperation with the German Aerospace Center, DLR. The very detailed and accurate representation of the surface is achieved by using a sophisticated and well adapted algorithm implemented on the basis of the Semi-Global Matching approach. In addition, the final product includes detailed flanking information consisting of several pixel-based quality and traceability layers also including an ortho layer.
