Earthdata mobilizes to begin Suriname mapping project

EarthData will mobilize to Paramaribo this week to kick-off its recent $1.8 million contract award with the Government of Suriname for high-resolution geospatial data products and services. Flight crews will acquire color-infrared aerial photography over 3,615 square miles of the country’s coastal plain where the majority of the population resides. EarthData will use the resulting imagery to generate high-resolution orthophotography and digital elevation models. Photointerpretation training also will be provided to government employees for land-use and land-cover analysis. U.S. based EarthData is an airborne data collection, mapping, and GIS services organization that provides clients with customized products, services, and GIS applications to support a wide range of land-use, resource management, and engineering activities.
