We offer the mapping communities a complete coverage of the USA with the DOQ Data (Digital OrthoPhoto Quadrangle) and NAIP data. We also have international sources of data and will be selling discounted 10cm and 25cm data through www.EarthOnDrive.com soon.
If you have data which you would like to sell online, your should send us an email and we can license the data for you. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be glad to assist you in your procurement process.
The Aerial Photography Field Office (APFO) has a vast amount of NAIP aerial imagery of most of the United States and its territories, with dates from 1955 to the present. Our data bundle is downloaded directly from the website and includes 2010 data over 30 states, 10 states dating 2009, and the rest dating 2008. The seamless images are created from orthoimages that have been mosaicked to show a continuous photographic map of a larger area. The orthoimagery component of The National Map is a standard seamless product with a 1-meter or finer pixel resolution and a 1,500-m x 1,500-m footprint. The images are georeferenced to WGS84 datum using the geodetic coordinate syste. The National Map is continually maintained and provides the most recent high resolution orthoimagery data.
A digital orthophoto quadrangle (DOQ) is a computer-generated image of an aerial photograph in which image displacement caused by terrain relief and camera tilts has been removed. It combines the image characteristics of a photograph with the geometric qualities of a map.
The standard DOQ’s produced by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) are either grayscale or color-infrared (CIR) images with a 1-meter ground resolution; they cover an area measuring 3.75- minutes longitude by 3.75-minutes latitude, approximately 5 miles on each side or a quarter of a USGS 7.5 minute quad. Each DOQ has between 50 and 300 meters of overedge image beyond the latitude and longitude corner crosses embedded in the image. This overedge facilitates tonal matching and mosaicking of adjacent images. All DOQ’s are referenced to the North American Datum of 1983 (NAD83) and cast on the Universal Transverse Mercator (UTM) projection. Primary (NAD83) and secondary (NAD27) datum coordinates for the upper left pixel are included in the header to allow users to spatially reference other digital data with the DOQ.

Development of the OLI-2 and TIRS-2 instruments is progressing, and both are on target for integration with the spacecraft in mid-2019. The instruments are rebuilds of those onboard Landsat 8; however, TIRS-2 has improved stray light performance through improved telescope baffling and improved position encoder for the scene select mechanism, both issues on the Landsat 8 TIRS instrument. The Landsat 9 ground system and Mission Operations Center (MOC) are progressing through their respective milestones. Landsat 9 remains on schedule for a December 2020 launch from Vandenberg Air Force Base..
Join us with our Drone Swarm Mapping technologies at the NAB in Las Vegas this year. Drones are flying at there own Aerial Robotics and Drone Pavilion this year. Don't forget to attend a number of sessions including aerial cinematography techniques, live broadcasting and US Part 107 certification. Our attendees will get to see our new product launches including electronics for swarm mapping and our SDK's based on Positioning, Ethereum, FCL, Mavros, OctoMap, OMPL, ROS, and web3.
NAB Show 2018 is home to the world’s largest collection of vendors driving the future of media and entertainment. ..
EarthOnDrive will be presenting its latest technologies and mapping software at the GeoBusiness, U.K. on May 22-23, 2018. The GEO Business show has grown every year since its inception, and the 2018 show looks set to be the most successful show to date with more exhibition space and a brand new seminar program. The event will return to the Business Design Centre, in London, UK, May 22-23.
Since its record-breaking 2017 event last year, which welcomed 2,386 geomatics and geospatial professionals from around the world (a 48 percent increase since the launch in 2014), the exhibition has expand..
Developers of the first real-time ray-tracing and global illumination Texturing Solution based on wavelet theory, WavGen Pro allows computer graphics users working with Maya 2017/18 and 3D Studio Max 2017/18 3D the abilithy to model, render, and animate literally terabytes of imagery and thousands of hypershade nodes. WavGen announces new and updated plugins for Linux, OSX, and Windows, that further integrate wavelet technologies with Autodesk’s line of 3D modeling, rendering, and runtime applications. We now have exporter plugins for work flows in gaming (Unity, Scene Graph, Unreal, Cry..
