Resumen:
Un centro de transferencia de tecnología de Reino Unido especializado en la comercialización de tecnologías de defensa y seguridad ha desarrollado una extensión de software GIS que supera los inconvenientes relacionados con la necesidad de procesar de forma rápida un elevado número de imágenes de diferente calidad, condiciones climatológicas y registros de fecha. Este software también ofrece importantes mejoras en la precisión y rapidez de procesamiento y aumenta las capacidades del análisis de imágenes geoespaciales. La solución encuentra aplicación en medioambiente (agricultura, ecología, conservación y cambio climático), transporte (planificación y logística), ciencia (astronomía, meteorología, arqueología y gestión del agua/energía) y seguridad (seguridad fronteriza, actividades contra el contrabando y respuesta a emergencias). La empresa busca proveedores de GIS con el fin de establecer acuerdos de licencia.

UK Government software for improving GIS imagery is available for license
Summary:
A technology transfer organisation in the UK that specialises in the commercialisation of defence and security technologies is licensing a novel extension to improve the capabilities of existing Geographic Information System (GIS) software. The new software allows automated image registration, object recognition and change detection using image sources of varying quality, viewpoints, elevations and timestamps. The company is looking to offer it to existing GIS providers.
Description:
The rapid growth in the demand for geospatial image analysis has resulted in the need for more capable Geographic Information System (GIS) software. Existing GIS software can be limited when there is a requirement to rapidly process large numbers of images of varying quality, weather conditions, and timestamps.
A leading UK technology transfer organisation has developed a GIS software extension that overcomes these limitations and also delivers huge improvements in the accuracy and speed of processing to enhance the capabilities for geospatial image analysis.
The multi-source analyst toolkit for improved spatio-spectral exploitation is a set of software algorithms to analyse operational imagery. It comprises algorithms for image registration, object identification and change detection. The novel approach used for image registration provides particular benefits for GIS software. Developed for the UK Ministry of Defence reconnaissance imagery applications, the toolkit benefits from more than 10 years of development and testing on large real-world datasets.
Unlike other image registration algorithms, it is not dependent upon tie points. This gives it a significant performance improvement as variations in the quality of
images increase. Image registration also benefits from the incorporation of 3D modelling which allows new terrain images to be accurately aligned with previously captured terrain images.
Huge improvements in the accuracy and speed of object identification and change detection from both airborne and satellite imagery have been achieved. In one operational example it has improved image matching from an accuracy of 200 m to 5 m or less.
The solution can have the following applications:
- Environmental - agriculture, ecology, conservation, climate change
- Transportation - planning, logistics
- Science - astronomy, meteorology, archaeology, water/energy management
- Security - border security, antismuggling, emergency response
The company is looking to offer a license agreement for its software to GIS system providers or integrators in the above sectors.
Advantages and Innovations:
- Converts a two hour manual process into a two minute, fully automated process

- Delivers high accuracy, even with very large data sets and old reference imagery

- Effective with large viewing angle variations, weather and lighting conditions

- Compatible with multiple sensors (optical, SAR etc.)
Stage of Development:
Available for demonstration
IPs:
Patent(s) applied for but not yet granted
