ALOS has collected more than 6.5 million images in the past 5 years by observing same area repeatedly. ALOS imagery are the optimum imagery to be used for identifying chronological changes of forest, change detection and inspection after occurrence of a disaster.
”One of the unique data that ALOS has provided to the geospatial community is the ALOS PRISM data. PRISM was a Tristereo capable sensor to be used for generating Digital Terrain Models of earth. We are excited to be working with RESTEC on this,” said Teo Huey Chin, Marketing Manager of DES Consulting.
“Offering quality data sets from reputable and reliable sources is always DES’s highest priority,” said Hoo Kai Hwa, Managing Director for DES Consulting. “ALOS imagery is a terrific fit for DES and its customers and we are excited to add it to our suite of products.”
The Remote Sensing Technology Center of Japan (RESTEC) was established in August 1980, with the aim of implementing basic and comprehensive research and development of remote-sensing technology for investigating global phenomena and Earth resources using data obtained from satellites, and disseminating knowledge of remote-sensing technology and other utilization of space technology, in order to promote economic growth and social development as well as the well-being of the nation.
Since then, RESTEC has been receiving and processing data from Earth-observation satellites from both Japan and overseas, and providing the data to users and researchers entrusted by the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) and other related agencies. In parallel with these activities, RESTEC also conducts research and development activities on remote-sensing technology and endeavors to disseminate the results of its R&D efforts.
