About Feature Extraction
Satellite Imaging Corporation (SIC) uses satellite image processing techniques to analyze and extract information from high resolution satellite imagery to create single, data-rich images for GIS and other mapping applications to achieve a multi-layered result for many types of analysis.
Feature extraction include structures and facilities (buildings, bridges, airports, etc.), land use, land cover, vegetation classification (agriculture, forestry, environmental, mineral), water bodies, well locations, soil types, pipelines and more.

One of the primary services provided by Satellite Imaging Corporation during the implementation of a GIS project is the georeferencing of various data layers for mapping projection. SIC has developed comprehensive policy and procedures to include QA and QC in the planning stage of every project involving the use of satellite image data.
To ensure that the vector data, which might be extracted from satellite images, or digital map data, is free of any coordinate ambiguities outside of the project specifications, SIC orthorectification services for satellite image data, topographic, geological, and any other source map data, using 75 to 100 percent of the grid ticks available on the maps.
The final vector data can be provided in a variety of formats, such as AutoCAD, DWG/DXF, SVG, ASV, ESRI shape files, or standard ASCII X/Y/Z, and referenced to a specified survey datum and mapping projection.
