Spatially Enabled Exploitation (SEE)


Solution details




BAE Systems’ SOCET GXP® offers flexible options for working with existing feature databases, collecting, editing, and querying feature data, and copying features between databases. The application also supports the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency’s Spatially Enabled Exploitation (SEE) initiative to standardize data formats. The SEE module for SOCET GXP interacts with ESRI® geodatabases. Analysts with little or no photogrammetry experience can connect to and populate the ESRI geodatabase directly from the SOCET GXP Workspace Manager and associated Multiport™. SOCET GXP manages the complexities of sensor models and terrain, allowing analysts to concentrate on image exploitation. Users draw, extract, update, and query features and image graphics — such as roads, buildings, and targets — using a ground coordinate system that records latitude, longitude, and elevation. Regardless of sensor type, images and graphics are aligned properly on subsequent images captured over time because the data is referenced in ground space. Analysts can anticipate conditions such as rough terrain or collapsed bridges and pinpoint operational routes more accurately. Spatially enabled exploitation (SEE) Direct connection to ESRI® geodatabase. •Extract vector data from imagery for future analysis. •Collect and store data using ground coordinates. •Ensure graphic consistency over time and accurate alignment. •Compare features across multiple images for change detection. •Apply stereoscopic imagery to ensure precise 3-D measurement. •Use imagery and associated sensor model with or without terrain. •Answer critical questions using spatial, attribute, and temporal queries. •Eliminate time-consuming searches for hard copy or archived reports. •Create feature style sheets, animate feature layers, export shapefiles, and display volumetric features in Flythrough mode. •Quick data retrieval and information sharing using common file formats. •Read MIL STD 2525 graphics, common graphic symbols widely recognized throughout the armed forces. •Connect to Open Geospatial Consortium-compliant Web mapping, feature, and coverage services to locate and download critical information, or upload Web graphics and images into feature attributes, which can be exported and viewed in Google Earth™. •Built to support Geospatial Knowledge Base and Pallet Driven Exploitation initiatives.
