SEKALA acts as a satellite image provider and is able to assist organizations to enhance, rectify, mosaic and interpret satellite images.
As part of this service, SEKALA is able to:
All of our base satellite image products are delivered ready for seamless integration into Geographic Information Systems, AutoCAD software or other planning tools.
SEKALA can also provide customized large-scale photographic prints of purchased satellite imagery.
In collaboration with EDPMedia, SEKALA can provide the following Digital Globe products:
DigitalGlobe’s QuickBird satellite offers sub-meter resolution imagery (65 cm resolution), high geolocational accuracy, and large on-board data storage. With global collection of panchromatic and multispectral imagery, QuickBird is designed to support a wide range of geospatial applications.
The IKONOS satellite is the world’s first commercial satellite to collect panchromatic (black-and-white) images with .80 m resolution and multispectral (color) imagery with 3.2-meter resolution. Imagery from the panchromatic and multispectral sensors can be merged to create .80 m color imagery (pan-sharpened). IKONOS has a revisit time of once every three days.
WorldView 1 was launched in September 2007. The high-capacity, panchromatic imaging system features half-meter resolution imagery. Operating at an altitude of 496 km WorldView-1 has an average revisit time of 1.7 days and is capable of collecting over one million km2 per day of half-meter imagery. The satellite is also equipped with state-of-the-art geolocation accuracy capabilities and exhibits stunning agility with rapid targeting and efficient in-track stereo collection.
WorldView-2 was launched in October 2009. Operating at an altitude of 770 km, WorldView-2 provides 46 cm panchromatic resolution and 1.85 m multispectral resolution. WorldView-2 has an average revisit time of 1.1 days and is capable of collecting up to 1 million km2 of 8-band imagery per day.
WorldView 3 was launched in 2014. Operating at an expected altitude of 617 km, WorldView-3 provides 31 cm panchromatic resolution, 1.24 m multispectral resolution, 3.7 m short-wave infrared resolution, and 30 m CAVIS resolution. WorldView-3 has an average revisit time of <1 day and is capable of collecting up to 680,000 km2 per day.
GeoEye-1 was launched in September 2008 and it collects the world’s highest resolution and most accurate commercial Earth imagery. The GeoEye-1 satellite collects images at .41-meter panchromatic (black & white) and 1.65-meter multispectral resolution. The satellite can collect up to 350,000 square kilometers of pan-sharpened multispectral imagery per day. This capability is ideal for large-scale mapping projects. GeoEye-1 can revisit any point on Earth once every three days or sooner. GeoEye-2 became operational in 2013. GeoEye-2 has 34 centimeter resolution and it surpasses the performance of GeoEye-1 in resolution, capacity, and agility.
