Through agency agreements with the world’s leading Satellite constellation owners CKAS can offer you low resolution (sub-30m RMSE), medium resolution (sub 2.5m RMSE) and high resolution (sub 1m RMSE) satellite imagery on commission or archive at extremely competitive rates.

Our product range provides for:

  • Geo-referenced Natural color satellite imagery (Mosaiced / Tiled)

  • Medium to High precision 3D Terrain Elevation Models (DEM)

  • Multi-spectral satellite imagery

KEY BENEFITS

  • Ideally suited for very large areas where conceptual studies / feasibility studies need to be undertaken

  • Imagery and data can be procured “off-the-shelve” (archived) or commissioned

  • Derive GIS grade accuracy survey data products (Relative Accuracy – medium, Absolute Accuracy – low).

    • Planimetric Accuracy – from 50cm (31cm GSD) up to 10m RMSE (subject to the fixing of post identification of survey control)
    • Vertical Accuracy (DEM / DSM) – from 50cm up to 30m RMSE
  • Our survey data deliverables can easily be integrated with all engineering design – and cad software

TYPICAL APPLICATIONS

Typical applications will comprise the following (but not limited to):

  • Low accuracy feasibility studies of large areas for infrastructure planning;

  • Border Control;

  • Agricultural monitoring

  • Environmental monitoring

  • Disaster Response

  • Landcover and Land Change monitoring and mapping;

  • Hydrological studies

REQUIRED INFORMATION FOR OFFICIAL QUOTE

We understand that every project, site and client is different – as are their expectations of the required survey deliverables.  In order to “sharpen the pencil” and offer you the most cost and time effective geomatics solution, fit for the purpose you require the survey, we would need to acquire the following information from you:

  • Location of the survey – ideally a “Google Earth Placemark” send to us in kml/kmz format

  • The purpose of the survey – this serve as an indication of the required level of accuracy required

  • Required accuracies (planimetric and vertical)

  • Specific detail which need to be surveyed

  • In the case of a LiDAR survey – required LAS classification (typical run-of-the-mill applications require only Ground and Non-Ground LAS classes)

  • Details on the presentation of the survey data

    • Hardcopy / Softcopy
    • CAD Specifications / Drawing Layout
    • Digital data formats required for integration into your design / cad software
  • Specific logistic constraints getting access to the specific area of interest

  • SHEQ Requirements (Medicals / inductions / onboarding / PPE / Mine-ready vehicles etc)

  • Schedule / Program – Should a staggered delivery be required we can work with you to provide critical data at key dates throughout your project.
