What is spatial resolution?

Spatial resolution is a term that refers to the number of pixels utilized in construction of a digital image. Images having higher spatial resolution are composed with a greater number of pixels than those of lower spatial resolution.

What is temporal resolution?

Temporal resolution refers to the precision of a measurement with respect to time. Often there is a tradeoff between temporal resolution of a measurement and its spatial resolution. This tradeoff can be attributed to the finite speed of light and the fact that it thus takes a certain time for the photons carrying information to reach the observer. In this time, the system might have undergone changes itself. Thus, the longer the light has to travel the lower is the temporal resolution.

What is spectral resolution?

Spectral resolution is the ability to resolve spectral features and bands into their separate components. The spectral resolution required by the analyst or researcher depends upon the application involved.

What is remote sensing?

Remote sensing is the small or large-scale acquisition of information of an object or phenomenon, by the use of either recording or real-time sensing device(s) that are wireless, or not in physical or intimate contact with the object (such as by way of aircraft, spacecraft, satellite, buoy, or ship).

What are the different platforms for sensors?

Two of the most common sensor platforms are satellites and airplanes. Satellites orbit around the Earth and are able to return to the same point on a regular schedule. Airplanes can fly to specific areas and regions at a specific time to capture imagery. Sensors mounted onto an airplane can be digital or photographic.

 

What does georeferencing or rectification mean?

Rectification or georeferencing is the process of assigning real-world coordinates (projection and datum) to geographic data to tie it to the Earth. When data are collected by cameras or digital sensors, they have inherent forms of distortion from the sensor and terrain. These various forms of distortion must be removed before images will spatially match other geographically referenced data sets. Once the distortion is removed and real-world coordinates are assigned, the data should accurately represent a given portion of the Earth, allowing for analysis with other properly referenced themes, layers, and images.

What does multispectral mean?

Multispectral refers to the sensor's spectral resolution. Sensors collecting between 2 and 16 portions (bands) along the electromagnetic spectrum (EMS) are typically considered multispectral.

What does temporal resolution mean?

Temporal resolution refers to how often the same geographic area is revisited by a sensor. Temporal resolution is governed by the orbital characteristics of the satellite vehicle. A sun-synchronous orbit means that the satellite travels on multiple pole to pole orbits coordinated with the circle of illumination (hemisphere of the sun's incident light), such that the satellite collects at approximately the same time of day at every point on the earth for every orbit.

How accurate are the CitySphere products?

CitySphere products are orthorectified to 1:4800 specifications. This equates to 4.1 meters CE90, and 2.5 meters RMSE.

How do you meet that product accuracy?

WorldView Global Alliance uses SRTM and surveyed ground control to meet the product accuracy.

How do I know what cities are available?

Please check Imagery Products section for a complete listing of cities which are currently available.

When will more CitySphere cities become available?

WorldView Global Alliance plans to produce 1:4800 orthomosaics for 200 pre-selected cities worldwide in the near future. Subscribe for updates to get instant notifications when a new city is added to CitySphere.

What if I want to order a CitySphere city, but need different processing options than what is available (different projection, no tiling etc.)?

Orders with different product parameters than CitySphere may be placed using SIME’s standard product list and pricing. This product list offers a wide variety of processing options. Please contact SIME customer support for more information.

Can CitySphere products be re-projected using common desktop GIS software?

Yes. Many desktop GIS/Remote Sensing software programs offer raster re-projection capabilities. Please check with you software vendor for more information. As an example, here is the methodology for ArcGIS: Reprojecting raster data using ArcToolbox:

  1. Launch ArcToolbox within ArcMap or ArcCatalog

  2. Expand the Data Management Tools folder

  3. Under Data Management expand the Projections and Transformations folder

  4. Under Projections and Transformations expand the Raster folder

  5. Double click on “Project Raster”

  6. Select the first image you wish to reproject

  7. The output image will default to a GRID format. If you wish to output a TIFF, you must enter an output filename with a .tiff extension. The output location will default to the same directoty as the input image

  8. Click on the button to the right of the “Output coordinate system” box in order to select from the ArcGIS library of predefined coordinate systems, or to import from a previously defined geodataset. Common selections such as State Plane, Geographic, are available as well as the ability to define your own.

  9. Choose a resampling technique to suite your needs

  10. The output cell size defaults to the size of the input image. If you wish to change the cell size of the output do so in the Output cell size field.

  11. Click OK to begin the reproject process. Processing time depends on the size of the image, amount of available RAM, and CPU speed.

Repeat this process for all images you wish to project.
