IKONOS Applications - Transportation
For municipal planners IKONOS satellite imagery can be directly integrated into Geographic Information Systems (GIS) for mapping transportation corridors. This same combination of GIS and satellite imagery can be used for emergency planning and response. 
The use of monthly subscriptions can be used to monitor construction progress and to keep an "as built" history of major construction projects. 
Multispectral 4 metre images can also be used to study transportation corridors. In this case the red, green and infrared bands have been combined to produce a false color image. Environmental damage and its effect on vegetation health can be detected and monitored using infrared imagery.
To view present road structure and plan future traffic patterns. In this case the ramps of large bridge end in a residential neighbourhood, any future expansion would involve major changes to the present neighbourhood.
