Research and development project 2003 – 2005
SARA’04: satellite-based regional monitoring for environmental applications) is the method for the automatic acquisition of information from VHR satellite imagery.
The VHR data quality of the QUICKBIRD-Satellite with ground resolution of 65 centimeters is comparable to airphotos, the purchase is cheaper and the aquisition is faster. Furthermore they are digital and can be integrated directly into existing geoinformation systems. At the moment the VHR-satellite Quickbird with the highest resolution available and suitable spectral characteristics for environmental applications, is most efficiently used.
