SimActive Used to Determine Solar Potential from Satellite Imagery

  • Rating12345

Montreal, Canada, April 7th, 2020 – SimActive Inc., a world-leading developer of photogrammetry software, announces that his Correlator3D™ product is used by Dutch company NEO B.V. to assess solar potential in multiple cities.  Digital surface models (DSMs) are generated from WorldView and GeoEye satellite stereo images and serve to calculate solar panel capacity.

DSMs covering hundreds of square kilometres are quickly generated by the software.  Key metrics to estimate solar potential are then derived, including roof orientation, pitch and shaded areas.

“We have been impressed by the quality of SimActive’s DSMs, especially considering the limited spatial resolution of the imagery”, said Rob Beck, Managing Director at NEO B.V. “Another definite advantage of Correlator3D is the simplicity of the workflow, making it easy to use by our team.”

About NEO B.V.

NEO is an innovative independent Dutch company established in 1996. The focus has always been on the automated production of image-based Calls-to-Action for customers, enabling better decisions and increasing efficiency. NEO operates in markets for information services in agriculture, environment, infrastructure management (pipelines, etc.) and the updating of map-based registrations. Most of our turnover is created in The Netherlands, but NEO works on 4 continents. See There is a scoop: NEO is the first company on the planet to assimilate multiple VHR-satellite coverages per year for an entire country (The Netherlands). The imagery is used to detect changes in all buildings, trees, roads, water courses and sometimes smaller objects as solar panels. From the detected spatial changes CtA’s are produced for hundreds of customers. See
