Geothermal GIS analysis program?

Recommended Posts

 

Hello!

I am new to the GIS world and as such have very limited knowledge of image analysis. My interest lies in identifying geothemal springs and mapping them. 

Large springs like Grand Prismatic Springs in Yellowstone can be observed on thermal imagery as seen in the attachment below (red arrow on the left). It creates a reproducible thermal "fingerprint" year after year.

Does anyone have any suggestions regarding how to best scan/detect these thermal "fingerprints" over a large area. Is there software that will automatically compare images for these "fingerprints"?

Perhaps something like this automatic landslide detection that compares images and indicates the probability of a Geothermal spring?

Any guidance would be greatly appreciated!

geothermal detection, you can use thermal based images from satellites, many product offer this, you can search any images with infrared bands.

something like this ;

many research papers talk bout this topic

if you want to compare, then simply using multi temporal images, happy learning :)

Interesting this topic, I hope that for the next few days I can prepare a review on it ... and share it with the community of GISAREA.
