Comparing Satellite Imagery and GeoCam Data

Here is a comparison of images taken by GeoCam (at 36 km up with a Canon Camera) and those taken by Satellites and featured on Google Maps. This is just before entering Moriarty, NM:


and a frame taken by GeoCam at the same scale

The level of detail afforded by GeoCam is comparable to the next best resolution provided by Google Maps.



Pedro has estimated that one pixel on GeoCam is about 3.3 feet. Potentially, GeoCam could be provide coverage for a larger swath of land as, in this flight it was tilted at 20 degrees angle from Nadir.


More on that later.
