|With its in-house developed processing chain RegioCover©, GeoVille produced and now serves a nationwide digital land use map, termed Regiomap Austria, with an unsurpassed price-quality ratio. RegioCover©,is a highly-automated land use mapping application, that further increases the reliability and efficacy of traditional processing approaches. It was awarded with the 2007 Definiens GMES Innovation Award.|
Regiomap Austria was produced using an object oriented image analysis and interpretation approach based on 2007-2009 15m TERRA ASTER satellite data. Class labelling was supported through orthophotos. The resulting digital land use map has 25 classes with a minimum mapping unit of 0.25ha. This means an improved spatial resolution by a factor of 16 compared to previous clutter maps available for Austria. The thematic accuracy is >95% and the geometric location accuracy is specified with ±1 pixel size.
Regiomap Austria is an off-the–shelf, GIS-ready product with a delivery time of a few days. More information and product specifications can be found on GeoVille’s website
