Structure-from-motion with SkySat Video

Blog

Unique among commercial sensors, the SkySats are capable of full-motion, panchromatic video from space. Ramon Arrowsmith, professor of Geology at Arizona State University decomposed one SkySat video to produce 3D models. As Ramon notes in his Active Tectonics Blog, SkySat captured video over a large open pit mine in Uşak, Turkey. Parallax—the […]

Crop Yield Variations in Smallholder African Systems

Paper

Improving the productivity of smallholder farms is thought to be a key component of the effort to reduce global poverty and increase food security, yet the productivity of smallholder farms remains poorly measured around the world. Using SkySat imagery validated against two years of field data, new research shows that satellite imagery […]
