Each individual survey yielded some 20 pages of data/statistics forming the basis of the analysis.

The 74 pages, 1.2 MB report is available for free access as a downloadable PDF document. The PDF can be obtained from Global Insights and NOAA (see direct links below). The overview touches on a number of areas, including technical trends in the industry, satellite sector trends, and government and political trends. Looking deeper into industry specifics, the report also covers off the future of remotely sensed software products, revenues, types of data, and applications/uses of satellite data. Respondents.

The Research

The NOAA Satellite and Information Service Division contracted Global Marketing Insights to conduct a research study of the international remote sensing market as it relates to aerial and satellite data technologies. Global Marketing Insights created a series of extensive online surveys covering issues related to eight sectors of the remote sensing market: aerial film, aerial digital, aerial sensors, satellites, commercial end users, value added hardware and software, academic, and government. These surveys were completed by geospatial industry professionals and end users worldwide between February and August 2005.

Consultants, companies, and academics interested in remote sensing technology, data products, and industry trends should be eager to get a copy of this report which will serve as a valuable planning tool for those seeking to capitalize on the growing market opportunities that our industry is realizing from the use of remotely sensed data products.

Leica RCD30: Better Resolution with More Details for 3D City Modeling

(Norcross,GA, 6 October, 2014) – Leica Geosystems’ RCD30 Penta Oblique system is now available with new optics. Compared to the previous configuration, which consists of lenses with 50 mm focal length for nadir and 80 mm for oblique images, the camera isnow available with 80 mm and 150 mm focal length respectively.  In combination with the new 80 MP CCD sensor, the RCD30 nowprovides data with even more detail. These new features make the RCD30 the only oblique system able to acquire 4-channel RGBNmultispectral data with 10 centimeter Ground Sampling Distance (GSD) from an altitude of 3,000 meters. No other camera on the market today offers these performance parameters. Compared to other systems, users can fly higher and achieve the same high resolution. […]
