The results of the quality checking confirm that the all products generated as part of this project meet the minimum requirements outlined in the SOW. However, as discussed above the precise DEM for Belize (Service 3) has yet to be produced due to the factors beyond our control.

Specifically, the generation of this DEM was dependent upon the acquisition of fresh Pleiades tri-stereo imagery over Belize. Unfortunately, the time-scale of this project meant that the image acquisition had to take place during the hurricane season in the Caribbean region. Despite multiple acquisition attempts by Airbus Defence & Space, considerable cloud and haze has critically hindered the acquisition of suitable imagery. Nevertheless, attempts to acquire imagery are ongoing, and it is intended to generate the 1m DEM as and when suitable tri-stereo imagery is acquired.
