• Flood and uncontrolled forest and grassland fires pose a serious threat to the population, infrastructure, and environment. For supporting risk management, we create flood and wildfire risk maps by integrating satellite data with 3D GIS-based flood and forest modelling. Such maps can support in identifying areas at risks and help implementing prevention measures.
  • With our web mapping service GeoSURV we provide geoportals for automated satellite download and processing, mapserver integration and provision of hosted web map services, PostGIS and MySQL database integration and GeoDatabase backend development.
  • Various segments of the global population are often at risk from natural hazards, such as floods, landslides, or droughts. With remote sensing such threats can be assessed and  disaster response preparedness be optimized. With the integrated use of digital surface models and remote sensing, geospatial technologies can accurately assess the risk of flooding and landslide susceptibility. Mapping historic floods or...
  • We provide satellite based maps for supporting forest management and conservation projects by mapping forest extent, detecting changes (e.g. forest clearing), monitoring afforestation measures, or assessing forest density and health.
  • With multi-temporal images we create accurate and long-term inventories of land cover for tracking land degradation, and for identifying natural and human induced changes in local ecosystems. We provide accurate maps for a score of topics, such as evaluation of rangeland degradation, desertification, or changing lake ecosystems, to support environmental management and related projects.
  • Remote sensing data allows for a detailed tracking of agricultural production dynamics in space and time. Crop type mapping and crop condition monitoring can be accomplished with multi-temporal imagery from various instruments, such as satellites equipped with optical or radar sensors. It can help improving irrigation management by monitoring agricultural pressure on water ressources.We develop automated monitoring and webmapping tools to support agricultural management and decision making.
