TCarta Hosting Coastal and Littoral Zone Mapping Workshop at GEOINT 2023

By Eric Van Rees - 16th May 2023 - 04:58

TCarta Marine, a global provider of hydrospatial products and services, will host a GEOINT 2023 workshop focusing on commercial satellite sensors and related technologies available to perform comprehensive mapping of the coastal and littoral zones, including the seafloor.

“The coastal zone is an essential domain for the GEOINT community, but it is dynamic and difficult to map,” said TCarta President Kyle Goodrich. “Fortunately, we are experiencing the golden age of commercial Earth observation where satellites can quickly deliver accurate information on nearly every aspect of the nearshore environment.”

The 60-minute workshop, Satellite-Derived Bathymetry: Essential Concepts, Production, and Evaluation, will be held at 7:30 am on Wednesday, May 24. The workshop is open to all GEOINT 2023 attendees, who must sign up for the session and pay a small fee in advance by logging into their USGIF account with this link.

Workshop attendees will be introduced to the vast array of commercial space-based sensors, machine learning and deep learning algorithms, and marine data hosting and visualization platforms currently available to collect, process, and disseminate littoral zone information. Attendees will learn which satellite to utilize for a given GEOINT application.

Designed for geospatial analysts and managers responsible for mapping coastal areas and creating littoral landing charts, the TCarta workshop will provide core technological concepts of deriving bathymetric data, seafloor classification, and other insights from multispectral, hyperspectral, and synthetic aperture radar (SAR) satellite data. Demonstrations of satellite-derived bathymetry (SDB) techniques within the Esri ArcGIS environment will be provided.
