Arrival Cities: Classifying Urban Poor Areas with Satellite Imagery

Hannes Taubenböck and his team at DLR are using Very High Resolution (VHR) satellite imagery, supplied by European Space Imaging, combined with auxiliary surveys to develop a base model classification system for the shape and structure of urban poor areas around the world. Slum, favela, tenement…whatever you call it, nearly

Automated Beach Litter Detection Using Satellite Imagery and Machine Learning

The Tama Group demonstrates how they use machine learning to detect trash along beaches from VHR satellite imagery and generate density maps to aid in cleanup efforts. Traditionally it has been a human user who analyzes satellite imagery for changes, but this process is slow and time-consuming. Whether detecting trash


Accurate and high resolution bathymetric data is a necessity for a wide range of coastal oceanographic research and is especially important when studying the environmental health of benthic habitats that are often disturbed by human or natural phenomena. Utilising the WorldView-2 and WorldView-3 satellites, we are able to see further

BEIRUT, LEBANON: Satellite Images Show Explosion Damage

At least 100 people have died and 4,000 people have been wounded in a massive explosion in Beirut, Lebanon on Tuesday 4th August 2020. Very High Resolution (VHR) satellite images captured only hours ago with WorldView-2 by European Space Imaging highlight the scope of the damage to the surrounding blast

Border Control in Melilla: A Very High Resolution Look

Very High Resolution (VHR) satellite imagery supplied by European Space Imaging plays a crucial role in monitoring high traffic migration areas like Melilla, Spain where large groups of migrants rush fences in an attempt to take advantage of blind spots and gaps between guards. The power of VHR data lies
