ASTANA. KAZINFORM - the International workshop «GEOMATICA Day in the Republic of Kazakhstan» held in the capital of Kazakhstan has shown new capabilities of use the Earth Remote Sensing National Space System.
The purpose of the workshop was to demonstrate the technological capabilities of Geomatica and GXL software (designer is PCI Geomatics Company, Canada) in order to process the satellite images of KazEOSat-1 and KazEOSat-2 spacecrafts, and ERS data of foreign companies – operators, to use the materials of space imagery for accomplishment of economic tasks of the Republic of Kazakhstan.
The hosts of workshop were the JSC «National Company «Kazakhstan Gharysh Sapary» jointly with the «Гео-Альянс» Company, Russia.
Maxim Alexandrov – General Director of «Гео-Альянс» LLC, Stewart Wyseman – Sales Manager in Africa and Europe areas (PCI Geomatics, Canada), Yudin Ilya – Sales Manager in Russia and CIS (Digital Globe, Russia) has taken place in the workshop.
The experience of the JSC «National Company «Kazakhstan Gharysh Sapary» and leading Kazakhstan and foreign organizations on use, acceptance and processing of ERS data, creation and use of GIS was demonstrated in the forum.
On the basis of test images the conclusions were inferred that the Kazakhstan ERS satellites have high accuracy specifications which allow the use data for creation and update of base mapping materials beginning from succeeding scales 1:5000.
The results of processed KazEOSat-1 stereo photography in GXL software, especially high detailed Digital Terrain Model with 1 m space and ortho- photoplan have been shown.
Besides, the algorithms of designers allow the use the spectral characteristics of sensors for thematic analyses in the fields of ecology, oil and gas industry, agriculture and forest management, emergency and others.
Over 80 representatives of state bodies of RK are registered among the participants of workshop. All participants are active users of space images from commercial ERS SS.
«That’s why it was important to demonstrate the capability of Geomatica and GXL software including the data processing from Kazakhstan KazEOSat-1 и KazEOSat-2 satellites», noted Acting President of the JSC «National Company «Kazakhstan Gharysh Sapary» Marat Nurguzhin in his speech.
