Landscape Image Analysis (LIA) Laboratory
The Landscape Image Analysis (LIA) Unit is a new research resource in the Geography Department, School of Natural Science. Its main function is to provide a high powered image analysis platform where accurate and high resolution data can be produced and analysed.
The LIA Unit has four components:
1. A high powered computer capable of processing large data sets from remote sensing platforms.
2. Specialised software: SOCET GXP®, BAE Systems’ digital mapping software application. Used for precision photogrammetry and geospatial analysis.
3. A 3D Stereoscopic LCD monitor to build digital terrain models from satellite image stereo pairs.
4. A Pen display monitor
