OT Dataspace
This dataset is a pointcloud over Almaty city, Kazakhstan, derived from SPOT6 optical panchromatic imagery acquired in 2014. The pointcloud was produced using ERDAS imagine (2020), and has been co-registered to TanDEM-X following the geolocation procedure of Nuth et al 2011, which shifted this pointcloud by 2.09/2.38/1.86 metres in the x/y/z directions respectively. A complete description of the generation of this dataset, the images that were used to construct the pointcloud and how the co-registration was performed can be found in the associated publication.
