Municipal IKONOS Applications
IKONOS 1 meter imagery can be used to map existing residential areas. The images can be imported into Geographic Information Systems (GIS) as background to vectors.
IKONOS 4 meter multispectral imagery can be used  for land use mapping. In this example a false colour image can used to differentiate between residential and industrial zones. Vegetated areas are seen in red, with the shade of red indicating vegetation health.
IKONOS imagery can be used to monitor high growth zones, with monthly, semi-annual or annual subscriptions. New roads, subdivisions and homes can be directly mapped from the imagery into a GIS. Imagery could be used by housing development companies to show the final "built as" in comparison to plan documents.
