Airbus Defence and Space Product

Product by Airbus Defence and Space

Airbus has developed a system for creating a land parcel reference map, to monitor new buildings and changes in building heights through a 3D monitoring system. Using very high resolution stereo satellite data, individual land parcels and building extents can be effectively monitored over time through a combination of automated image analysis and field data collection. The output change map provides city officials with a prioritised list of areas and buildings showing significant change, to be verified on the ground, and re-assessed for tax valuation, thus leading to accurate and additional property tax revenue.
