October 26, 2009 —AAMHatch is pleased to announce the popular Multi-Site product is now available for 50cm GeoEye-1
satellite imagery. Multi-Site, already available for 80cm IKONOS imagery, allows clients interested in multiple captures over small areas to acquire the higher resolution and more accurate GeoEye-1 satellite imagery.
We know the market is interested in this of product as a result of clients such as CTF Solutions. “CTF Solution has reached the milestone of acquiring more than 1,000,000ha of submetre resolution satellite imagery to undertake property planning and mapping. The majority of the high resolution satellite data we have utilised has been IKONOS multi-site data, which we are sourcing from GeoEye’s Australian Reseller, AAMHatch”, says Tim Neale – Director, CTF Solutions.
Neale goes on to advise that, “Over the past year, AAMHatch has provided CTF Solutions with good advice and timely service, and we have been able to take good advantage of the cost-effective Multi-Site product for our clients, both in Australia and internationally.”
“As many clients wish to acquire imagery over multiple smaller sites or over multiple dates, this new option is really cost effective” says Lisa Dykes, AAMHatch Satellite Imagery Team Leader.
The benefit of this new offer is really that the minimum new capture area of 100km2 is slashed to only 50km2 if the same site is imaged 3 times annually or 3 separate sites of 50km2 are ordered at the same time. This equates to a 50% saving on each new capture order. The added advantage is that users still maintain the other benefits, i.e.
1. 2km x 2km guaranteed cloud free area
2. 15% cloud cover or less assurance policy
3. Unparalleled horizontal accuracy of 3m (excluding terrain effects) without ground control
4. 4 band multispectral imagery
