The event, which took place at the Bustan Rotana Hotel, Dubai, on the 1st and 2nd of November, 2010, aims to create a platform for industry professionals to discuss the latest technological developments in the regional geospatial market.
In keeping with the event’s theme, the SIME booth displayed a host of imagery from the WorldView-2 satellite, the first commercial high-resolution satellite to provide 8 multispectral bands. Imagery displays included the Yas Marina Circuit (Abu Dhabi, UAE), the Qatar Pearl development (Doha, Qatar), and BuTinah Island, (Abu Dhabi, UAE).
The SIME team also conducted several live demonstrations for exhibition attendees, which included an interactive demonstration of different 8-band combinations and their specific industry applications, as well as on-booth demonstrations of GeoAxel, our advanced 3D visualization and analysis software solution, and AnalystPlus, our geospatial information management and reporting system.
