USGS ANNOUNCES NEW PRODUCT LINE

A technique to estimate radiometric values in Landsat 7 data gaps has been selected, and the resulting new products will be available to customers in June 2004.


The USGS Landsat 7 Project at the EROS Data Center in Sioux Falls, South Dakota has been taking steps to increase the utility of the ETM+ data that includes non-functional scan line corrector (SLC) artifacts. The SLC on the Landsat 7 ETM+ instrument failed May 31, 2003.


In the planned products, the gap pixels are replaced with data from a previously acquired SLC-on scene that is registered and histogram matched to the SLC-off image. The histogram matching technique is a localized linear transform performed in a moving window throughout the missing pixels.


Also, in March 2004 the current ETM+ SLC-off product will be available to the public with a user-selectable amount of interpolation to replace missing gap pixels. The http://landsat7.usgs.gov/slc_enhancements/.

Aibot X6 uses Leica Nova MultiStation for accurate geospatial data without GNSS

(Norcross, GA /Kassel, Germany, 1 October, 2014) – At this year’s INTERGEO in Berlin, Leica Geosystems and its sister company, Aibotix, will present a solution for accurate positioning of the Aibot X6 without GNSS. The UAV can be tracked accurately with the Leica Nova MultiStation to define the exact position. Using the Aibot X6 together with the Nova MultiStation can inspect top surfaces of aircrafts in hangars, enabling users to rely on its proven functionality without the support of GNSS. The UAV, equipped with Leica Geosystems’ 360° prism, flies over the aircraft and takes high-resolution images of its surface. This solution helps, for example, to ascertainlightning strikes and effectively document […]
