Deeper Analysis, Faster Insight: Enhanced Applications with WorldView-2's New Spectral Bands
WorldView-2, scheduled to launch on October 6th, 2009, will be the first 8-band multispectral commercial satellite available today! With a mission life of 7.25 years, and operating at an altitude of 770 km, the WorldView-2 system is expected to bring unsurpassed agility, capacity, accuracy and spectral diversity to commercial earth imaging.
Join this Webinar to hear Dr. Kumar Navulur, DigitalGlobe's Principle Scientist, as he discusses how the new spectral bands will improve remote sensing applications such as better feature identification and classification, improved bathymetry, better change detection and more.
In Our Free Webinar You Will:
- See how the four additional spectral bands (coastal blue, yellow edge, red edge, and near infrared 2) enable broader ranges of classifications, enhanced vegetation and coastal analysis, the extraction of more features and the identification and tracking of coastal changes and infractions.
- Discover how the new red edge (the first in the commercial industry) and yellow edge spectral bands deliver more granular field classifications, improve the understanding of vegetation analysis (health, age, type, species) and provide early warning capabilities to industries that interact with, and depend on, the environment such as pipeline monitoring, environmental mapping and precision agriculture applications.
- Learn how the new coastal blue spectral band will enhance bathymetry studies for sea floors, coastal plains and waterways, discriminate features of the shallow ocean floor more accurately and increase the scope of coastal remote sensing applications--improving the safety of marine navigation and providing much needed insight into the ever changing marine environment.
- Discover how the WorldView-2 based portals and navigation devices will see the world in the truest natural state--bringing better definition and clarity to the user's visual reality, and allow mapping experts to use those bands to pinpoint more points of interest and create more diverse, interesting navigation applications.
