NSW Govt receives VHR satellite image mosaics

By on 3 December, 2019

Geospatial Intelligence has partnered with Geoimage and Airbus Defence and Space to provide the NSW Government with state-wide, very high-resolution satellite image mosaics.

Spatial Services, as part of the NSW Department of Customer Services (previously the Department of Finance, Services and Innovation), requested NSW-wide satellite imagery products and services for temporal analysis at multiple epochs during 2019 and 2020 to determine the rate of change within dynamic regions of the state.

The tender, won by Geospatial Intelligence, highlights the importance of satellite-derived data to the NSW Government.

“Using cutting edge technology and some of the best earth observation satellites available, we were able to deliver this product to the NSW Government ahead of schedule,” said Geospatial Intelligence CEO Rob Coorey.

In 2019, Geospatial Intelligence tasked Airbus SPOT 6/7 satellites, capturing more than 1 million square kilometres of near-cloud free 1.5-metre resolution imagery over NSW and Lord Howe Island. A second capture of the state-wide imagery will begin in early 2020.

Geoimage is responsible for processing the SPOT6/7 data to provide the state-wide high-quality colour balanced mosaic and tiled image for each of the biannual captures.

The images will be available to be viewed by New South Wales State Government agencies for internal purposes and for use within public facing web-services.

The government also has access to search the entire Airbus satellite archive, with over 100 billion square kilometres of satellite imagery from the Pléiades and SPOT constellations, through its online Geostore.
