What is Post Processing and Why Would I Need it?
There is hidden value locked in the pixels of your ‘raw’ medium and high resolution imagery. Advanced analytic techniques that rely upon both the spectral and spatial characteristics of digital imagery can be used to extract helpful land information that was once only possible with costly manual labor. Post processing can also improve the accuracy of imagery and derive the associated elevations which can replace initial surveying work necessary for construction projects.
We’re here to help you unlock this hidden value in all of your imagery projects.
Apollo Mapping offers top quality post processing for your medium and high resolution imagery datesets at reasonable prices by completing the work here in our Boulder, Colorado office. The time and effort we save on production and quality control is passed on directly to all our valued Apollo Mapping clients.
Here is a list of the most popular post processing services we offer:
- Elevation Models – derived topographic models from overlapping imagery pairs (or stereo pairs) in a variety of formats
- Orthorectification – improves the horizontal accuracy of any raster imagery dataset
- Photo Enhancement – improves the clarity and colors of all medium and high resolution imagery products
- Spectral Analysis – calculates and extracts information from the inherent spectral and spatial information contained in your imagery
Don’t see your specific need on this list? Let us know. It’s more than likely we can help you with your specialized post processing needs.
Useful Information on Post Processing Techniques
Orthorectification improves the horizontal accuracy of imagery by draping the data over an elevation model and applying ground control (if available). Improved accuracy is important for engineering, government and energy related projects.
Elevation models are an important input to many construction and engineering projects. With high resolution satellite imagery, 1-meter elevation models are possible.
Photo enhancement is the ideal solution for those seeking an easy-to-use, photo realistic backdrop for ArcGIS, AutoCAD or any geospatial software.
Spectral analysis reveals information hidden in the pixels of your medium and high resolution imagery.
