GeoEye-1 DEM Generation for Mining - Whitepaper

White Paper: Automatic DEM Generation using GeoEye-1 Stereo Data In Mining Applications
This article describes how high resolution satellite data can be used to extract accurate digital elevation model (DEM) for a mining application in the Amazon region.  The resulting vertical accuracy can be within RMS error of 1.5m when using a minimum number of ground control points.
