• The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development defines 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) that aim to end all forms of poverty. The Agenda acknowledges the role of Earth Observation (EO) and geospatial information technologies for tracking and monitoring indicators of SDGs over time. Open and free image archives such as those of Copernicus provide data across scales – from local to...
  • SAR data such as by the new Sentinel-1 satellites of the Copernicus Earth Observation program facilitate the accessibility and exploitation of the earth surface also under cloudy conditions and with unprecedented spatial and temporal detail. With our GeoSURV tool and based on advanced processing techniques, we extract added value information from SAR data to provide operational mapping solutions that can...
  • 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  at risk from geohazards, such as floods, landslides, or droughts. Due to the spatial nature of hazards and risks,  satellite earth observation sensing can  assess such threats and disaster preparedness be supported with valuable spatial information. Mapping historic floods help assessing areas at risk of natural disasters and operational flood monitoring adds to the...
  • 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.
