Data Processing

Turn imagery into accurate geo-information data using state-of-the-art, proven technologies

Through our continued effort in R&D, we have developed a unique expertise in geometric and radiometric processing and image classification to analyze and convert remote sensing data and multi-spectral images to geo-information datasets ranging from single image to country-wide mosaics.
This expertise is now at your disposal, in the form of on-demand processing services or through deployment of processing systems in your facilities.

We offer innovative processing and high capacity of production to extract geo-information from satellite and aerial imagery.

Our processing solutions can produce large quantities of all types of EO data – multi-resolution and multi-satellite, spaceborne and airborne, optical and radar – tailored to the needs of your geospatial project.

Elevation Models

GEO Elevation provides highly accurate height information everywhere in the world, whatever the relief and weather conditions. These elevation models are used for high-quality image orthorectification, multi-scale mapping, terrain knowledge, water body identification, flood modeling and 3D visualization.



SPOTMaps products provide nationwide or regional coverage, orthorectified, derived from SPOT 5 colour satellite images at a resolution of 2.5 metres .

UK reference data products

Our online catalogue Geostore gives instant access to an extensive range of aerial survey geo-information products for England and Wales – aerial photography, digital terrain and surface models plus colour infra-red imagery. In major urban areas across the UK, this is enhanced by high resolution imagery and Lidar height data.
