Very High Resolution satellite images offer a unique view of what lays in, on and around urban and rural settlements. It provides a cost-effective and simple method of monitoring wide areas both locally and globally, as opposed to using in situ data, and is an indispensable tool for managing the actions and events that impact urbanisation leading to urban sprawl.

From Urban To Rural: Enabling Sustainable Urban Planning and Development Using Satellite Imagery

The definitive guide to acquiring and using satellite imagery in the urban planning industry.

DETAILED ANALYSIS

Very high resolution satellite imagery is clear enough to show road lines, sidewalks, vehicles, small structures and even people. This allows for precise analytics for city development. It is ideal for:

  • Studying Traffic Patterns
  • Crowd Management
  • Small Feature Identification
  • Verifying Property Lines
  • Mapping Road Features
  • Walkability Analysis

MATERIAL IDENTIFICATION

We offer more spectral diversity and better spatial resolution than any other satellite imagery provider – allowing you to see more of what is actually happening in your city. Multispectral imagery can assist in identifying building materials, separating organic and synthetic surfaces, analysing plant health and much more.

This has endless applications including environmental impact studies, compliance reporting and impervious surface calculations.

City Morphology

Large-scale monitoring with VHR satellite imagery provides valuable information about the morphology of a city. Understanding the patterns of new construction and traffic in a rapidly growing municipality provides insights into new infrastructure requirements.

Mapping and GIS activities are greatly enhanced with the use of VHR multispectral and stereo satellite imagery.

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.

What is SAR Imagery? Introduction to Synthetic Aperture Radar

SAR imagery enables all-weather monitoring, penetrates dry soil, and offers resolution as high as 25 cm. Thanks to that, it’s invaluable for applications like emergency response, defence and intelligence, or agriculture. How does SAR work? What are its advantages and limitations? And what other data sources can you integrate it with? Read the article to learn more.
