Check out our WorldView-3 core skills workshop at GEOINT

Kevin Wells

I’m really looking forward to the upcoming GEOINT 2015 Symposium, which is taking place next week on June 22-25, at the convention center in DC.  Each year, USGIF manages to assemble a distinguished list of keynote speakers, relevant panel discussions and breakout sessions that provide  attendees with a unique opportunity to learn from leading experts, share best practices, and uncover the latest developments from government, military and private-sector leaders.   

One of the most significant technological developments in our industry over the last year has been the satellite launch and subsequent collection of DigitalGlobe’s WorldView-3 data. With the access to 31 cm resolution imagery and SWIR coverage, this satellite is providing more answers from imagery to our community.  As a result of this, Exelis personnel have been receiving frequent inquiries from our customers as to how this new imagery can be used to extract information. 

Due to this interest, we decided that GEOINT would be a great opportunity for us to conduct a workshop where we provide attendees an opportunity to better understand the data being collected from WorldView-3, as well as how to use this data for extracting relevant intelligence. Working in collaboration with DigitalGlobe, Exelis Solutions Engineers have developed a session to provide the core skills needed for understanding how to create real-world products from SWIR information. Though focused on WorldView-3, the methodologies discussed will be applicable to other MSI/HSI data sources. This workshop is perfect current literal image analysts or others with limited spectral data experiences who are interested in learning more about using SWIR data. Scenarios used for the workshop will address Urban Mapping, Wildfire Mitigation, Flooding and Disaster Response.
