AUTOMATED Analysis Ready Data (ARD) workflows for COMMERCIAL sensors

Questions & Answers

All core technology required to build an ARD workflow is available in CATALYST Professional. However, there is a tremendous amount of intelligence and heuristics that was researched and developed for ARD Enterprise to streamline and automate the entire procedure.

Yes, it is our intention to make the ARD workflow available through microservices.

Our ARD workflow is designed for most commercial and open source satellite optical sensors. The processing pipeline includes processes for geometric correction, radiometric normalization and packaging according to CARD4L specifications.

Yes, we have tools that allow you to index your processed data to move it to the open data cube. 

To process the PAN imagery we use the MS imagery to simulate the radiometric characteristics from the MS image. We can also create pansharpened ARD images using Multi-Resolution Analysis (MRA) image fusion, which maintains the radiometric fidelity, ensuring the measurements are suitable for analysis.

The spatial and temporal limits are defined by your available datasets.
