The conversion of raw imagery to information products tailored to specific user needs will become increasingly important in order to maximize the utility of the data and deal with the large amount of imagery that satellite systems will be capable of collecting. This conversion will need to be largely automated if the resulting products are to be cost effective. By making available the third, or height, dimension, collection of overlapping imagery of the same region helps both to broaden the class of information products that can be produced and to increase the reliability of automated processes for information extraction. This paper describes processes for extraction of height information and enumerates some of the products which such information enables.
