The best decisions are informed ones. Very high resolution satellite images show you the situation as it really is in near real-time, optimising your response to any situation. Whether you are seeking new information about an event, or want to confirm other sources of information, satellite imagery can help you answer questions about:

  • Migration
  • Urban planning / Sustainable development
  • Asset management
  • Tax control
  • Roads and utilities management
  • Construction
  • Emergency planning


To truly understand the past it is useful to have a record of it. Our world is being imaged more frequently than ever before, giving us an image library documenting the changes that have taken place over recent decades. We are able to supply this archive imagery, and can also arrange new satellite image acquisitions over your area of interest – so you can see what is happening there now. This can support operations such as:

  • Agricultural controls
  • Detecting illegal buildings
  • Maintaining cadastral maps
  • Monitoring regulatory compliance

Satellite Imagery for Emergency Management

The use of satellite imagery for emergency response and management is invaluable. Both optical and SAR images help rescuers save lives when disasters happen, assist with damage assessments, and in many cases contribute to successfully preventing and predicting emergencies. Which events can be prevented? How exactly do first responders use satellite images? When are they better than other methods? We have summarised our 20+ years of experience in this article.

Satellite Imagery as a Valuable Tool for the New Common Agricultural Policy 2023–2027 

On 1 January 2023, the new Common Agricultural Policy for years 2023–2027 entered into force. Hand in hand with the provided subsidies goes the necessity for monitoring and controls, which falls to the individual Member States. Therefore, an efficient, reliable, and cost-effective source of data is needed. Such source is Very High Resolution (VHR) satellite imagery. It allows you to conduct in-depth analysis of plant and soil conditions, map land use at wide scales with incredible detail and accuracy, and ensure that agricultural goals are being met.
