Core Software Technology and Spacemetric announced the availability of an integrated system for the production, management and dissemination of remotely sensed imagery products. Through the integration of their respective products, a wide range of customers from ground receiving stations to value added producers can create derivative products from raw satellite imagery for their customers.
Spacemetric’s SIP/Ortho solution generates ortho-corrected image products from a wide range of commercial satellite imagery data sets including Ikonos, Eros, QuickBird and Spot 5. The system also supports rational polynomial functions as an alternative for feeding in additional satellite sensors. Through its advanced approach, SIP/Ortho can achieve accuracies within the sub pixel level with only a few ground control points. Core’s TerraSoar system manages and distributes satellite imagery through a standard web browser. TerraSoar is in broad use within the US and is part of several large programs for the management of satellite imagery archives maintained by the US Government. Core has deployed its solution to 15 ground receiving stations worldwide and has developed the first worldwide fully integrated e-commerce and distribution system for geospatial data.
