PhotoSat accuracy studies

Test Areas

The test areas were chosen based on the availability of high accuracy reference data:

  • Garlock Fault test area – LiDAR
  • Asmara, Eritrea – D-GPS ground control points surveyed for gravimetric studies

Survey grids derived from DigitalGlobe WorldView imagery

The underlying plot shows the relationship between ground control point density and PhotoSat survey grid accuracy for grids derived from photo pairs of the DigitalGlobe’s WorldView constellation.
