SPOTLIGHT: Mountain Gorilla Lodge Kinigi, Rwanda
This IKONOS (0.8m) satellite image shows the Mountain Gorilla Lodge located in Kinigi, Rwanda in the Volcanoes National Park home to the endangered mountain gorillas. A new mini series about the life of Dian Fossey "Secrets in the Mist" will honor her life's work trying to save the gorillas from poachers which took her life and the cause of her death today remains unresolved. Read more on how high resolution satellite imagery is used today for wildlife monitoring, conservation and habit mapping.
With over four decades of experience, we use our unique understanding of the oil industry to help you assess risk and reduce expenses. By utilizing old and current multispectral satellite image data, spectral analysis and sub-pixel classification, old well locations can be recovered and coordinates adjusted to improve the geophysical and geological interpretation "before" additional wells are drilled in the same area. This increases the success ration considerable, especially when some of the old well locations have coordinate problems in excess of 1 km. Specialty services include recovery and coordinate adjustments of old wells, as well as seismic surveys in heavy jungle and desert terrain.
Multispectral imaging (VNIR), WorldView-3 Short Wave InfraRed (SWIR) and thematic mineral mapping allows researchers to collect reflectance data and absorption properties of soils, rock, and vegetation. By leveraging wavelengths and spectral reflectance data, spectral signatures, invisible to the human eye, can be established for mineral traces located on the surface. Our satellite imaging technology can yield unrivaled insight as to the composition of earth surfaces, greatly aiding geologists, scientists and researchers. This data could be utilized by trained photo geologists to interpret surface lithology's, identify clays, oxides, soil types and identify potential locations of minerals, from high and medium resolution satellite imagery.
Satellite Imaging Corporation (SIC) has developed comprehensive policy and procedures to include QA and QC in the planning stage of every project involving the use of remote sensing data for GIS mapping. Using our extensive array of advanced satellite sensors, we can provide you with data and imagery of unparalleled quality and geospatial accuracy to support your 2D or 3D GIS map applications such as precision agriculture mapping. One of the primary services provided by SIC during the implementation of a GIS project is the georeferencing of various data layers to one common mapping projection of choice.
