Over the many years, Apollo Mapping has helped a countless number of academics and professors source the proper imagery for their grant-funded research budgets. Whether it is 8-band multispectral and short-wave infrared (SWIR) WorldView-3 satellite imagery for land-use land-cover mapping; 50-cm digital elevation models (DEMs) for archaeological research; or synthetic aperture radar (SAR) for monitoring weapons of mass destruction (WMDs) in remote regions, we have decades of expertise finding the correct geospatial data source for your next project.
In this regular series, In Focus, we scour the internet to find former Apollo Mapping clients who used our satellite imagery and/or DEMs in their academic research. So without further ado, here is this month’s featured academic article.
Article Title, Author & Academic Institution: Simulation of Hydrology and Population Dynamics of Anopheles Mosquitoes Around the Koka Reservoir in Ethiopia, Noriko Endo, Massachusetts Institute of Technology
Key Scientific Discipline(s): entomology, hydrology, water resources
Executive Summary: Field observations in Ethiopia were used to validate the results of a HYDREMATS simulation which modeled local hydrology and mosquito population dynamics. High-resolution commercial digital elevation model (DEM) data was employed in the analysis for one study site.
Commercial Satellite Imagery Datasets Used: 8-meter Advanced Elevation Series (AES) digital terrain model (DTM) extracted from panchromatic 50-cm WorldView-1 stereo pairs
