ATLAS Bolsters Global Ground Network for Two Satellites

ATLAS Space Operations, a leading innovator of ground communications in the space industry, continues to grow its on-orbit customer base with two additional launches. BlackSky Global’s Global-3 and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) COSMIC-2 both successfully launched into orbit, utilizing ATLAS for communications and data support. ATLAS is tasked with providing ground station operations as well as telemetry, command, and data support for both BlackSky and NOAA’s newly deployed satellites. ATLAS will support the Low Earth Orbit (LEO) constellations via their global network of ground stations, including their four newest antennas located in Sunyani, Ghana; Harmon, Guam; Tahiti, French Polynesia; Chitose, Japan....

Rare Marine Atlas Expected to Fetch up to $120,000 at Auction

An extremely rare copy of the atlas that broke Britain’s final symbolic grip on America following the Revolution is expected to sell for up to $120,000 at Swann Auction Galleries in New York on 5 December 2017. The American Pilot: Containing the Navigation of the Sea-Coast of North-America, originally published in 1791, was instrumental in the United States taking control of its own mapping – a service previously dominated by the British – and at last gave the New England commercial fleets the charts they needed to navigate East Coast waters under American control. Although published in a number of... (read more)

UK is a Leader in Heritage Mapping

The mapping of historical cultural features, which we will call heritage mapping, is mainly based on photogrammetric methods. Mapping for this purpose has been going on for many years using a great variety of techniques. There are also many applications from conservation and archaeology to museums and public understanding. Early Developments The use of photogrammetry for recording buildings was introduced during the late 19th century by the German civil engineer and architect Albrecht Meydenbauer, and techniques and applications have been developing and extending ever since. In the United Kingdom, the Royal Commission on the Historical Monuments of England (RCHME) was a government... (read more)
