                               LANDMAP Project
                                     for the
                      Creation of Satellite Image Map Mosaics
                                      and
                   Digital Elevation Models for The British Isles


Dear Colleagues,

Manchester Computing and UCL Geomatics Department are seeking funding for
project LANDMAP that will rectify the UK academic satellite data archive.
Description of this project is available on
http://shakeeb.mcc.ac.uk/landmap/

We are in the process of seeking feedback from the user community. We would
appreciate it if you could use the Response Form,
http://shakeeb.mcc.ac.uk/landmap/response.htm, to provide us and the funding
body with your views on this project. Replies are requested by April 9th
1999.

The main purpose of LANDMAP is the creation of a free for use to academics
base map for Britain that will allow academics unhindered access to spatial
data-sets derived from the academic satellite data archives.

CHEST, http://www.chest.ac.uk, is negotiating the acquisition of additional
satellite data. CHEST, MIDAS, UCL Geomatics, and other interested academic
parties want to target this additional purchase to create an enhanced and
more useable satellite archive. This will be done through the purchase of
radar data products from the European Remote Sensing satellite ERS -1 and
ERS-2.

LANDMAP will process the additional datasets and the current archive and
produce the following output datasets and services.

1 - A set of GPS Control Point locations for GB together with associated
"image chips".
2 - A 30m DEM product.
3 - Ortho-Rectified archive of SAR data
4 - Ortho-Rectified archive of Landsat data.
5 - Ortho rectified archive of SPOT panchromatic data
6 - Landsat - SAR fused archive
7 - Landsat - SPOT fused archive
8 - SPOT - SAR fused archive
9 - Quality Assurance of the above products
10 - Web based training materials in the use of ERS-SAR data for mapping and
intereferommetry
11 - A national facility for the processing of remote sensing data.
Integrated set of software tools, a guide to best working practice, and a
streamlined work flow for the processing of remote sensing satellite data.
12 - End of project workshop/seminar

The UK academic community is in a unique position to create these resources
given the previous investment in the acquisitions of the current archive.

Support and comment from the academic community is most welcome. Feel free
to forward this email to your colleagues who are not on this list who might
be interested in this project output.


Best regards

Kamie
