Colorado forest fires / Photo interpretation
June 29th, 2012 by Sanjay Gangal
This image, captured by the Pléiades 1A satellite, shows the area of Colorado affected by forest fires, enhanced with additional information by Astrium Services’ geo-experts. The images from the Earth observation satellites operated by Astrium Services (Pléiades, SPOT, etc) are often used to support homeland security and emergency services personnel following a disaster.
Launched in December 2011, Pléiades 1A generates 50cm resolution imagery, following resampling, which is used for precision mapping and photo analysis.
