The main goal of this project was to create a topographic map and a 3D terrain model for the farm in Waco Kungo (Angola) in a short time.
“Projects like Angolan will become the technological standard, both in terms of execution time and quality standards,” said Victor V. Lavrov, Deputy General Director at Innoter.
A 3D model of an agricultural farm on the territory of Angola, created in collaboration with Terra Space experts based on GeoEye-1 satellite imagery. A distinctive feature of the project was record-breaking work completion times: less than 1 month passed from ordering new surveys to finished maps and 3D models.
A set of works was performed:
- planning and ordering a new space color survey from the GeoEye-1 satellite with a spatial resolution of 0.5m;
- photogrammetric processing of the obtained images, orthorectification of images using the coefficients of rational functions of the camera (RPC-polynomials);
- creation of a photo map and a digital topographic map in arbitrary conventional signs based on an orthorectification image;
- creating a 3D farm model using the unique technology provided by Terra Space based on a single GeoEye-1 image and a topographic map created with an accuracy of 3 meters in height.
The mapping was carried out in the Mapinfo 10.0 program; decoding and drawing of point, linear and area objects were made.
Creating a 3D farm model using the Microstation V8 environment.
The project was presented at the exhibition Geo-Siberia and aroused great interest from visitors. A distinctive feature of the project was record-breaking work completion times: less than 1 month passed from ordering new surveys to finished maps and 3D models.
