Observera specializes in integrating photogrammetric and image science technology into customized geospatial processing solutions. We draw on internal code resources, open source capabilities, and COTS tools, as appropriate.

Central to our philosophy is providing solutions that effectively integrate human and computer resources at cost-points consistent with customer budgets. Our staff brings extensive knowledge of and experience with data sources; collection procedures, collaboration technology, imaging tools and processing techniques; automation; and training to develop complete end-to-end image and geospatial processing solutions. Some of the modular capabilities currently included in our repertoire:

  • The Open Source Software Image Map (OSSIM) libraries
  • The open source Geospatial Data Abstraction Library (GDAL)
  • The Sensor Model-based Automated Registration Tool (SMART)
  • Automated handling of image sources and image streams
  • Automated filtering of metadata
  • Automated atmospheric correction
  • Automated terrain illumination correction
  • Automated change detection
  • Automated spectrally accurate pan-sharpening of multispectral data
  • Semi-automated land-cover / land-use classification
  • The QT cross-platform GUI application development framework
  • The ERDAS Enhanced Compressed Wavelet (ECW) compression technology
  • The ERDAS Image Web Server (IWS) SOA-based technology
  • The Google Maps and Google Earth APIs
  • The open source Simile timeline project
