GEOSPATIAL MAPPING IS A MODE OF ELECTRO-OPTICAL IMAGING WHICH CAPTURES HIGH-RESOLUTION, PHOTOGRAPHIC STILLS WHICH ARE THEN ORTHORECTIFIED AND STITCHED TOGETHER. THIS CAPABILITY IS USED FOR UPDATING OUTDATED MAPS OR CREATING ENTIRELY NEW MAPS.
Geospatial mapping captures high-resolution photographic imagery and constructs maps of the landscape. As an application of GEOINT, or geospatial intelligence, the electro-optical imagery is used to update outdated maps and provide the most current look at the landscape. Imagery captured for geospatial mapping may be taken from directly overhead or off-nadir. Through orthorectification, imagery captured for geospatial mapping is adjusted for planimetric accuracy, modifying the image for the tilted perspective of the camera as well as the foreshortening of the terrain.
TYPICAL USES FOR GEOSPATIAL MAPPING
