Out of this World: Examples of how Satellite Data is Driving Innovation
The increasing quantity and quality of environmental indicators and imagery tracked from space is creating huge new capabilities in the field of geospatial analytics. Combining Big Data analysis and machine learning with local expertise and observations on the ground is allowing huge leaps forward in areas such as disease tracking, natural resource monitoring, disaster recovery and environmental risk.
Philip Briscoe of Harwell-based geospatial data analysts Rezatec provides an overview - and case studies - from the front line both in the UK and globally, and explains how combining all of these approaches promise the Holy Grail of earth observation: the ability to monitor, verify and enforce sustainable environmental practices for planet Earth.
