Industry Insights: Updated Lidar Base Specification Urges Consistent Data Collection Practices

By John R. Hughes, editor, Earth Imaging Journal, Denver. In late 2009, a $14.3 million allocation from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act for new light detection and ranging (lidar) elevation data prompted the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) National Geospatial Program (NGP) to develop a common base specification for all lidar data acquired for The

Combining Remote Sensing and Biodiversity Research

Conservation biology has been tasked with coordinating research and monitoring efforts to revert the current biodiversity crisis. Rooted in ecology, the discipline traditionally sought relevant information from ground-based methodologies. On the other hand, the roots of environmental remote sensing lie in the geography and engineering disciplines.

NGA Helps Execute U.S. Strategy at the Top of the World

By Jason Moll, Office of Corporate Communications, National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency. Although the United States has had an interest in the Arctic since it purchased Alaska from Russia in 1867, climate change has caused national leaders to develop new policies and strategies for the region. The National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) has a key role in fulfilling the nation’s Arctic strategies because of its mission and ability to understand the land, sea and human activity.

Earth Observation Comes of Age

Just 15 years ago, besides the familiar hurricane swirls and other weather-related phenomena, the average person had seen few, if any, images collected by an Earth observation (EO) satellite. Meanwhile, in relative obscurity, the scientific community was benefiting from a bonanza of incredible Earth imagery from the Landsat program, which launched its first satellite in

Geospatial Solutions Energize the Oil Patch

Virtually any business with assets that can be imaged and mapped will benefit from geospatial capabilities. There’s no more compelling evidence of this, however, than in the petroleum industry. According to U.K. firm Exprodat, it’s generally estimated that more than 80 percent of the data used in the petroleum industry—from the initial opportunity analysis through
