    Crowdsourcing Geospatial Big Data

    Every day, DigitalGlobe collects over 4 million sq km of high-resolution imagery, complete with super-spectral information. This creates an immense opportunity not only to see the globe but to understand it. Computer vision algorithms can locate every car, plane or baseball field, identify every building and map all the crops and minerals on the surface of the Earth. When the computers can’t figure it out, we turn to the crowd. In this webinar, you will learn about the DigitalGlobe Tomnod crowdsourcing platform – it combines the wisdom of millions of online volunteers to analyze trillions of pixels and respond to natural disasters, chart human conflict and search for missing people, boats and planes.

    The Importance of Surface Reflectance for the Analysis of Optical Very High Spatial Resolution Images

    The analysis of very high spatial resolution imagery is too often limited to the sole use of pixel digital numbers which do not accurately describe the observed targets between various collections due to the effects of changing illumination, viewing geometries, and atmospheric conditions. This webinar illustrates, both qualitatively and quantitatively, that not only is surface reflectance necessary to consistently and efficiently analyze satellite imagery, but also that the angular information of the acquisitions should not be neglected as it can provide unique features on the scenes being analyzed.
