Satellite vs Aerial Imagery: Which To Use And How To Combine Them
Remote sensing projects can often begin with the question “Should I use aerial imagery or satellite imagery?”. This question may come up again and again over the course of long term projects where unforeseen circumstances change the ability to collect data, the reliability of the data or the scope of the work. Budgets, technology and government restrictions are under constant transformation. Looking at the key differences between aerial imagery and Very High Resolution (VHR) satellite imagery provided by European Space Imaging can shed light upon how one might better suit your needs or how they can work together to achieve optimal results for any remote sensing endeavor.
This high quality 30 cm resolution Digital Surface Model (DSM) was created by GAF AG utilizing 30 cm Very High Resolution Tri-Stereo Satellite Imagery collected by European Space Imaging (EUSI). This model is part of EUSI’s initiative to map all major European metro areas in 3D on a yearly basis.
Do you need to map a large urban area? This webinar presents all you need to make a well-informed decision between aerial and 15 cm satellite imagery.
