Valuable insights from advanced data sets to prevent and plan for disasters
As disasters increase in frequency and severity, there is a growing need for effective planning and rapid response. Manual surveying large areas of devastation can take days.
Pre- and post-event satellite imagery enables first responders to make the most impact by quickly mapping passable routes to deliver critical services in the most efficient manner.
European Space Imaging has worked with EU-funded emergency response and mapping services for over 17 years. We are the only European provider to offer True 30 cm resolution imagery. This benefit paired with our unique ability to accept emergency orders 24/7 and deliver within 30 minutes of collection positions us as the leader in space-based natural disaster and humanitarian crisis monitoring in Europe.
An advanced system for integrating activations from European municipalities into the collection plan and the comprehensive real-time weather monitoring by our operations department has lead to hundreds of successful data deliveries and countless lives saved.

The Copernicus Emergency Management Service (EMS) uses satellite imagery and other geospatial data to provide free of charge mapping service in cases of natural disasters, human-made emergency situations and humanitarian crises throughout the world.
Copernicus EMS – Mapping is provided during all phases of the emergency management cycle and always free of charge for the users. The maps are produced in two temporal modes:
- Rapid Mapping consists of the provision of geospatial information within hours or days from the activation in support of emergency management activities immediately following a disaster.
- Risk & Recovery Mapping consists of the on-demand provision of geospatial information in support of Disaster Management activities not related to immediate response.

Prevention & Planning
Knowing the extent of an emergency allows authorities to implement the best response and estimate its true cost. Satellite imagery rapidly enables this, regardless of where in the world the disaster has taken place. It is useful for understanding the effects of:
- Storms, hurricanes, and whirlwinds

Off Nadir Angle (ONA) plays a crucial role in the quality of optical satellite imagery. It influences its resolution and clarity, decides the visibility of features, and makes it easier or harder to identify objects. Moreover, ONA is used to create stereo imagery and 3D models of the Earth’s surface. Read on to learn more.
Sun glint occurs when sunlight reflects off water or another reflective surface at the satellite sensor, creating a bright glare in the image. That can make it impossible to extract useful information from satellite imagery. What do we do to minimise its impact?
