IMAGE PROCESSING SERVICES

With decades of experience creating products for government and commercial customers, our experienced staff of imagery scientists and analysts will work with you to meet or exceed a wide range of customized requirements within the desired cost, coverage, schedule, and quality constraints of your project.

Seamless Mosaics

L3Harris Geospatial experts frequently merge multiple sources of imagery together to provide customized coverage of an area. The resulting product is a seamless, color-balanced, tonally-balanced, georeferenced or orthorectified image file ready for use in any mapping or imaging software.

Pan Sharpening

The high-resolution panchromatic band is merged with the corresponding coarser resolution multispectral bands to create a high resolution color image. Spatial detail of the panchromatic source is retained while preserving radiometric characteristics of the multispectral source.

Contrast and Color Balancing

There are many environmental factors or atmospheric conditions that can affect the quality of imagery captured via satellite. Haze, fog, glare, and pollution, are examples of conditions which can obscure the imagery between the sensor and the ground. L3Harris Geospatial routinely balances the color bands and tones of satellite imagery to correct for these interferences to create the best of every image band and delivery the clearest and most aesthetically-pleasing imagery.

 

Orthorectification

Orthorectification corrects terrain displacement in imagery caused by off nadir or “sensor tilt” effects during image capture. This improves the positional accuracy of the imagery and allows users to overlay their current working data with recently acquired satellite imagery for correct alignment.

Cloud Patching

Satellites orbit well above our atmosphere allowing for the possibility that clouds will appear within the captured imagery. Using multiple overlapping scenes and advanced cutline processing, we can seamlessly patch areas of satellite imagery containing clouds with other cloud-free imagery of the same area, revealing more land surface in the final data.

 

Multi-resolution Blended Imagery

Multiple sources of varying resolutions can be used to create a custom Multi-resolution dataset over a large area. High-resolution insets of areas of interest are blended to lower resolutions in the surrounding areas, resulting in seamless, large-scale coverage.

TrueTerrain nBand

TrueTerrain™ nBand Orthomosaic products are custom built multiband datasets created using L3Harris’ proprietary technology and constructed from the best available archived or newly acquired imagery from RapidEye, Sentinel-2, or Landsat 7-8 sensors.

  • nBand Orthomosaics from Planetscope sensors have 4 multispectral bands: Blue, Green, Red, NIR
  • nBand Orthomosaics from Sentinel-2 sensors have 4 multispectral bands: Blue, Green, Red, NIR
  • nBand Orthomosaics from RapidEye sensors have 5 multispectral bands: Blue, Green, Red, Red Edge, NIR
  • nBand Orthomosaics from Landsat 7-8 sensors have 6 multispectral bands: Blue, Green, Red, NIR, SWIR1, SWIR2

TrueTerrain Support Data

TrueTerrain products are accompanied by a set of support data files that provide important metadata information about the source data and specific project information.

  • Metadata- XML format, FGDC compliant
  • Cutlines with source data attributes

CLASSIFICATION SERVICES

Material Classification

Advanced material classification extracted from all multispectral bands available, identifying the two dominant materials as well as the relative abundance of each material, for each pixel in the dataset.

Available at the same pixel resolutions and precisely correlated to our TrueTerrain imagery, the material classification dataset is ideal for creating various sensor views to accompany out-the-window views within the Simulation Image Generator.

Material classification products can be used to create night vision, IR, and radar visual databases, or for mapping high detail, geotypical textures with real-world accuracy.

Land Use/Land Cover

Imagery derived LULC layers represent how much of a region is covered by forest, wetlands, impervious surfaces, agriculture, and other land and water types.

  • 20-Class Correlated Multi-Resolution LULC data available in raster or vector formats
  • Compliant with Multi-Resolution Land Cover Characteristics (MRLC) Consortium defined data layers
