Satellite Imagery and GIS for Land Cover and Change Detection
Satellite imagery and GIS maps for land cover, land use and its changes is a key to many diverse applications such as environment, forestry, hydrology, agriculture and geology. Natural Resource Management, Planning and Monitoring programs depend on accurate information about the land cover in a region. Methods for monitoring vegetation change range from intensive field sampling with plot inventories to extensive analysis of remotely sensed data which has proven to be more cost effective for large regions, small site assessment and analysis.
Evaluation of the static attributes of land cover (types, amount, and arrangement) and the dynamic attributes (types and rates of change) on satellite image data may allow the types of change to be regionalized and the approximate sources of change to be identified or inferred.

Satellite images with moderate to high resolution have facilitated scientific research activities at landscape and regional scales. Availability of satellite imagery can provide spatial resolutions of <0.5m for analysis of urban growth and transportation development for assessment and monitoring. Moreover, multispectral bands, can provide increased spectral resolution that can be used to further analyze and classify environmental conditions, land cover and change detection, and howand associated transportation development impact these conditions.
Satellite image analysis allows for:
- Fast and accurate overview
- Underlying soil characteristics
Satellite images enable direct observation of the land surface at repetitive intervals and therefore allow mapping of the extent and monitoring and assessment of:
- Crop health
- Storm Water Runoff
- Change detection
- Air Quality
- Energy Savings
- Irrigated landscape mapping
- Carbon Storage and Avoidance
- Yield determination
- Identification of

SIC provides high and medium resolution 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 changes. Satellite Image data delivered can include 16-Bit Multispectral GeoTIFF files to support spectral analysis and produce radiance and/or reflectance data.
3D Maps - Digital Elevation Models (DEM's)
SIC utlitizes stereo satellite image data for the production of 3D Terrain Visualization products including Digital Surface Models (DSM's) and Digital Elevation Models () 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.
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.
