Earth Imaging Progresses in Fits and Starts

Welcome to the first issue of Earth Imaging Journal under the ownership of V1 Media. Our team is excited to join old friends who share a passion for the promise and power of remote sensing and related geospatial technologies.   Now is a great time to be involved in Earth observation, with the proliferation of

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

A Great Time for Earth Observers

In less than four months, DigitalGlobe plans to launch its WorldView-3 Earth observation (EO) satellite. In addition to offering 0.31-meter-resolution panchromatic and eight-band multispectral imagery, WorldView-3 was licensed by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) to collect eight-band short-wave infrared (SWIR) imagery, making it the only EO satellite with such capabilities. WorldView-3 imagery is

Reflecting on Dr. Roger Tomlinson’s Contributions to GIS

“The beginning is the most important part of the work.” —Plato, The Republic On Feb. 9, 2014, Dr. Roger Tomlinson passed away at the age of 80. Anyone who has spent much time around a geographic information system (GIS) likely is familiar with Tomlinson’s anecdotal standing as the “Father of GIS.” Born in Cambridge, England,

Seeking a Technology Edge

Technology is developing so rapidly that it’s becoming more and more challenging to put a value on it. For instance, reflect on Google’s 2012 purchase of Motorola Mobility for around $12.5 billion. The acquisition gave the company access to more than 17,000 patents, plus 7,500 more that were awaiting approval. Admittedly, part of Google’s strategy

Striking a Passionate Chord for Nature

Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, Nothing is going to get better. It’s not.                                                                                             —Dr. Seuss Can you guess what Conservation International (CI), Pearl Jam and Ecuador have in common? Through a partnership with CI, the award-winning rock band was able to offset the carbon footprint from its 2006 concert tour

Discovering and Derailing Asymmetric Threats

The Earth Imaging Journal staff has watched geospatial technology evolve for nearly two decades, and we long have recognized the important contributions the industry has made across a host of critical disciplines. But never before has the power of “where” been more vital to the intelligence community and our nation’s security in terms of addressing

Civil Unmanned Aircraft Forecast: A Touch of Gray

“I feel about the airplane much as I do in regard to fire. That is, I regret all the terrible damage caused by fire. But I think it is good for the human race that someone discovered how to start fires and that it is possible to put fire to thousands of important uses.” —
