ESRI – ArcGIS as a Comprehensive Imagery System
With massive quantities of imagery available in a wide range of modalities, there is a need to integrate them into the information systems that model the Earth, to enable better decision making at both local and global levels. ArcGIS is a comprehensive imagery system able to work efficiently and at scale with all these data sources. This session will describe the massive volumes of imagery and other spatial data that ArcGIS makes accessible, and how these datasets can be efficiently accessed and managed to create a range of accurate photogrammetric mapping products and services at scale.
ArcGIS includes multiple solutions for processing drone imagery including SiteScan for ArcGIS and Drone2Map. An overview of different options, decision criteria, workflows and the expected results as well as the use cases for those results will be presented.
ArcGIS includes SURE for the fully automated generation of surface models, true orthophotos, point clouds and 3D meshes from aerial images. Besides visualization, these products offer an optimal data basis for measurement tasks and simulations. They become the basis for simplified interaction with geoinformation for a variety of applications.
The presentation will also cover how analysis (like deep learning) can be applied to extract information, how all forms of geospatial data can be integrated for efficient visualization and image exploitation, and how this all can be distributed, whether publicly or within and across enterprises.
