"SIC's Expertise Prevents Potential Problems...."
Satellite Imaging Corporation (SIC) combines orthorectified satellite imagery with extracted vector data and client-supplied geospatial data to create single, geographic informations systems (GIS) data-rich maps for various industry applications including agriculture, disaster management, energy and environmental monitoring. SIC incorporates GIS data to achieve a multi-layered result for many types of analysis and management pertaining to your project.The expertise and accuracy of our GIS mapping services precludes nearly all potential problems associated with GIS maps.
By utilizing machine learning, neural networks algotithms and satellite remote sensing techniques, automated extration of objects detected on satellite imagery can expedite and reduce the cost of e.g. monitoring and counting wildlife, detection of solar panel arrays on commercial and residential buildings, detection of objects similar in shape or materials or other suitable applications, such as precision agriculture mapping etc.

Our GIS mapping services allows us to capture, store, manipulate and analyze geospatial data to combine database, mapping and statistical methods to integrate georeferenced data for data collection, processing, and management ensuring accurate solutions that allow you to overcome tough challenges pertaining to your project. Our focus is to deliver accurate quality geospatial products to help manage your mapping goals.
Some projects are hampered by coordinate problems of different satellite image and vector data layers, which are caused by one or a combination of the following:
- Improper orthorectification of satellite imagery or aerial photography
- Use of different survey datums and/or geodetic parameters
- Poor quality of GPS derived ground control points (GCPs)
- Improper rectification of digital source raster maps
- Importation of vector data or shape files for source data with incorrect coordinates
- Improper use of units or unit convergence factors for source data
- Utilization of source data from a corrupt coordinate database
Our team is committed to quality control and provides continuing geodesy, mapping, ArcGIS 2D and 3D geospatial support services to our clients. We ensure that the geospatial data sets provided to our clients are utilized in only the most effective manner. On every GIS project, whether it is large or small, we implement ongoing data quality control to ensure that coordinate databases, foreign source data such as geological and topographic maps, GIS data attributes and layers create a truly seamless GIS mapping environment.
We use our in-house knowledge in geodesy, land and hydrographic surveying, 2D/3D digital mapping, GIS, and satellite remote sensing applications to provide the most professional services and products to our clients.
One of the primary services provided by SIC during the implementation of a GIS project is the georeferencing of various GIS 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 for geographical information systems mapping including:
- Mineral Mapping
- Agriculture Mapping
- Pipeline Corridor Mapping
- Defense Mapping
- Airport Mapping
- Land Cover Classification
- Topographic Mapping
- Urban Development
- Pre and post 2D/3D seismic surveys
- Environmental Impact Studies (EIS)
- Coastal erosion studies
- Cadastre Mapping
- Disaster Analysis
