Thematic mapping

The thematic mapping product is the result of thematic interpretation, classification and spatial analysis performed by an expert using Earth remote sensing and GIS technologies. Its creation can be seen as the final stage in the use of satellite imagery. In mapping, experts from different fields identify the objects necessary for the customer and their parameters based on the optimal combination of satellite imagery. The result of thematic mapping is a map of any thematic focus.

SCANEX has all the necessary experience and competence to make a wide range of thematic mapping products for various sectors of the economy and production. In creating thematic maps, experts can independently select necessary and sufficient raw materials for the high-quality project implementation, focusing on their knowledge of the scale of research and characteristics of the phenomenon being interpreted. This allows them to select the most appropriate resolution and the survey time range, as well as the necessary combination of spectral channels. At the same time, experts perform all of the necessary data pre-processing for interpretation, ensuring high positional accuracy and reliable metricity of mapping outcomes. In making thematic mapping products, SCANEX can use its own survey archive, which significantly reduces the cost of the final service.

The thematic mapping is done using ScanEx Image Processor® software developed by SCANEX. Thus, the company's experts thoroughly examine all of the parameters and nuances using automated classification algorithms that allow them to achieve the best results in automated interpretation and then, if necessary, they refine the results.

In thematic mapping, SCANEX experts provide the customer with the results in the required format: as electronic rasters and vector maps; in the form of traditional printed maps; or by providing access to the results of thematic mapping based on geoportal technologies. The final results of thematic mapping can also take the form of statistics and reporting documentation, as well as analytical assessments and a set of recommendations.
