Earth Observation provides full coverage of our planet across both space and time. Earth observation satellites remain available for a long time and they can highlight environmental changes occurring gradually in the long term.
The current climate and ecological crisis demands a radical redesign of the cities we live in.
Although conventional data, such as sensors data, are useful for calculating urban indicators, they are frequently inadequate due to generalization, outdating, or unavailability.
Earth Observation (EO) has become an effective alternative source of geo-information for urban management and planning and proved capable of enriching scientific knowledge with the spatial information needed to implement urban planning initiatives. …
We monitored some soybean crops in Padua using our EarthAlytics cloud platform.
The soybean plants belong to the leguminous class. Bacteria on the roots of these plants take nitrogen from the air and fix it in the soil, so that other plants that require nitrogen can also use it.
This plant helps to improve the nitrogen content in the soil and allows farmers to apply the so-called “crop rotation”.
Thanks to the NDVI index we can describe the vigour level of the crop and have a graphical representation of it and its formula is:
“PARSEC — Promoting the international competitiveness of European Remote Sensing companies through Cross cluster collaboration” is an EU project which aspires to provide start-ups and SMEs with the necessary resources to develop and launch Earth Observation (EO) based products and services into the market. This will be realized through a comprehensive acceleration program, offering a total of €2.5 Million-euro equity-free funding to applicants, alongside coaching, training and market entry support.
The PARSEC Accelerator invited SMEs, startups and aspiring founders keen to develop innovative services for the Food, Energy or Environment sectors to apply to its first Open Call, seeking to fuel these innovations with data from Earth Observation satellites. …
An automation paradigm to make earth observation images accesible to everyone
Latitudo 40 has created the easiest and fastest platform to turn satellite imagery into geospatial information to support everyday decisions: EarthAlytics.
More than 300 Earth observation satellites produce a huge number of images that contain valuable information to meet the challenges of global sustainability.
Analyzing geospatial data requires high skilled analysts, that’s why it was usually limited to large corporates and governments.
Earth Observation is evolving from collecting and selling images to providing intelligence derived from these images.
Latitudo 40 aims to offer a solution that will remove barriers to access information contained in images, with the aim of making earth observation analytics applicable in all business processes and in all companies. …
