GeoEye-1 image sample from ITT sensor

ITT, the company that created the ‘earth imaging payload’ on the recent GeoEye-1 satellite, has posted a sample image from the satellite. While the image isn’t raw, it is still impressive. It is a fusion image created from blending the 0.41m panchromatic image and the 1.65m color image. I remember fusion from just a decade ago that blended IRS with LandSat that I though was great, but this clearly pushes us to the point where satellite is truly competing with aerial imagery…and more importantly can you imagine the size of datasets created when you classify them 🙂
