Satellite Mapping

Improve your efficiency and decision making through our satellite mapping services, providing your organisation with relevant and timely geospatial insights based on reliable, current, satellite images.

Improved decisions by leveraging satellite data

Many leading organisations, such as federal, state, and local governments; natural resource agencies; and Architecture, Engineering, and Construction (AEC) firms, now use satellite imagery as an essential part of their activities to track population, deforestation, climate change, land use, vegetation, etc. In addition, satellite images can be used to create more accurate base maps, providing relevant and timely geospatial insights to your GIS and CAD users, ultimately facilitating organisation-wide improved decision making.

Avineon has long-lasting experience in integrated solutions for processing and analysing various types of satellite images, ranging from optical to radar. We process satellite images with high to very high resolution and specialise in image analysis. We extract and interpret relevant landscape features down to the highest level of detail by combining a variety of techniques, such as change detection, automated feature extraction, and land use land cover analysis.

Improved Geographic
Insight

Focused, up-to-date, geographic insights result in better strategic choices, increasing your organisation’s efficiency.

Monitor
Evolutions

Comparing geographically processed data over time enables you to determine trends and evolutions. Keep a close eye on changes in your urban spread, economic transformation, or land use.

Our Satellite Mapping Services

We follow the below four steps to provide you with the required geographic data and insights, enabling you to start working immediately. It goes without saying that any of these steps can also stand on its own.

1. We analyse your needs
2. We process the satellite images
3. We perform the analysis
4. We deliver the data and analysis results

Design

Avineon analyses your needs and translates these into specifications and a technical solution. We are independent of satellite data suppliers and/or software vendors, and thus provide neutral advice that best fits your needs and requirements.

Needs Analysis

Both teams (yours and ours) sit together to make an inventory of the requested analysis. We then translate these needs into specifications and the technical solution to be implemented in the next stage.

Implement

Avineon can assist in, or conduct, the purchasing of the satellite data and processing the acquired data towards the required specifications. Our data treating capacity is almost unlimited, spanning up to 400 specialised data technicians. Our QA/QC processes, in addition, facilitate an end result of very high quality.

Creation of Satellite Maps

Our services to process the required satellite images range from selecting and acquiring raw data from various national and/or international providers, over supplying orthorectified images that are radiometrically corrected and mosaiced, to the extraction and interpretation of information from these images.

Sustain and Grow

Do you have an existing database that needs to be updated or to which information needs to be added? We combine semi-automatic change detection artificial intelligence techniques with our specialized image interpretation knowledge to deliver your enhanced datasets on truly short notice and with high quality.

Change Detection & Updates

Avineon combines satellite imagery of very high resolution with other geodata sources (ranging from large- or medium-scale vector maps to GIS layers) to semi-automatically detect changes in the landscape within your area of interest and, if required, within a specific period of time.

 

Based on the detected changes, we can either update your maps, digitize relevant features (e.g., illegal or damaged features), or just simply indicate areas of attention.

Why Avineon

Our solutions comply with all requirements for the production of satellite mapping databases. Our effective project management methodology combines a team of experienced imagery interpreters with an independent quality assurance team. This success formula has proven our ability to produce large volumes of data, in full compliance with quality standards, within remarkably short timeframes.

We facilitate a close and open communication within the project, enabling your team to follow the production schedule and quality. Our project organisation and methodology allow a high level of responsiveness – quickly adapting to events that arise during the course of the project. Our close project monitoring, linked to our production resources, is one of our key assets to meet your deadlines. We also offer a one-year warranty on all our deliverables.

Quality
Assurance

Our quality assurance (QA) team, that works independent from the production team, develops a rigid control process based on, and tailored to, your requirements. Only data validated by the QA-team is delivered to our customers; data that does not meet your requirements goes back into the production process for correction and re-inspection.

Project
Management

To drive our projects, we use the PMBOK/Prince2 methodologies in combination with Agile approaches. Close communication with our customers, and close monitoring of production, are our keys to successful project execution.

Production
Capacity

We have the capacity to process several thousands of square kilometres per month, and have already done so in past satellite mapping projects and other image interpretation projects.

Experience and Expertise

Each year, Avineon cover tens of thousands of square kilometres. Our data entry teams, and control operators, are supervised by experienced team leaders with a minimum of seven years of experience in various satellite interpretation and mapping projects.

Delivery Models

At Avineon, we have the delivery model tailored to your needs:

 

> Mixed Delivery Model: Our local specialists have the required knowledge of your specific local requirements and specifications to understand your needs and translate these into clear working instructions for our production teams. This allows you to benefit from flexible production resources and economies of scale, ultimately resulting in a cost-benefit for your organisation. The level of direct client involvement with the production team is tailored to your specific needs and preferences.

 

> Local Delivery Model: If you prefer a completely local project execution, no problem – Avineon has the local resources available to realise your project.
