Since imagery is playing a more vital role in creating and sustaining a reliable GIS, Stereo Analyst for ArcGIS provides a direct ‘image to GIS’ approach in order to obtain reliable feature data from imagery.
In this introductory course, students will learn how to use Stereo Analyst for ArcGIS, and the tools provided in ArcMap for the purposes of collecting new and revising existing feature datasets in 3D. It is there that feature classes, which are stored within a Geodatabase, are directly accessed and updated using imagery.
