Satellite Images for Environmental Monitoring
Satellite Imaging Corporation (SIC) provides satellite image data at different spatial, spectral, and temporal resolutions by using the appropriate combination of bands to bring out the geographical and manmade features that are most pertinent to your project for detecting and monitoring environmental changes.
Satellite imagery and GIS have greatly expanded opportunities for data integration, analysis, modeling, and map production for environmental monitoring and assessment. As populations grow, as countries boost their economies, as landscapes change, governments have increasingly relied on up-to-date satellite imagery and other geospatial data for applications such as environmental planning, land registration, disaster response, public health, agricultural biodiversity conservation and forestry
High resolution satellite imagery have facilitated scientific research activities at landscape and regional scales. Availability of satellite images can provide spatial resolutions of 0.5m or better for analysis of urban growth and transportation development for assessment and monitoring. Multispectral sensors can provide increased spectral resolution that can be used to further analyze environmental conditions, land cover and change detection, and how urban growth and associated transportation development impact these conditions.
SIC provides optional satellite image processing products and techniques that may incorporate specialized processing procedures including:
- Land cover classification and mapping
- Coastal seafloor mapping
- Extraction of culture data
- Coral reef detection and mapping
- Agriculture Production
- Forestry production
- Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI) classification and mapping
- Lithological classification and mineral mapping
- Change detection
- Environmental monitoring
- Urban development and monitoring
- Wildlife and Habitat Monitoring
3D Maps - Digital Elevation Models (DEMs)
SIC utlitizes stereo satellite image data and is processed for visualization of terrain conditions in 3D Digital Elevation Models (DEMs) which are generated from a variety of resources. The DEM's are utilized in support of the analysis, monitoring and management of many environmental assessments.
Rapid Acquisition/Rush Tasking
RUSH tasking orders for satellite image data around the world are accepted by SIC in support of live events, natural disasters, global security, and various other applications in which FAST delivery of image data is critical. In most instances, we can provide image data within 24 hours after the initial data has been acquired and delivered via FTP and DVD media.
