Leveraging remote sensing technologies like satellite imaging to support natural resource exploration activities is not a new concept. Doing so in a value-adding, cost-saving and user-friendly manner has been a challenge for many years. However, we have entered a new era of geospatial intelligence. More high-resolution imaging satellites have been launched since the beginning of… (continued)

We look forward to continuing our work with you in 2017. The Earth-i team.
No cutting-edge technologies were used and no ground-breaking scientific discoveries were quite yet made. But an entire generation of future scientists were inspired! Earth-i was at a recent Principia Schools Conference in Portsmouth, organised by the UK Space Agency (UKSA), which exhibited and celebrated the work done by over a million school students throughout the… (continued)
By Peter Hausknecht for The Geological Remote Sensing Group newsletter. Issue 75 | September 2016 The last few years have seen an accelerated provision of very high resolution satellite data* by a number of providers in the commercial satellite data supply world. Since 2015 satellites produced by SSTL in the UK are part of this… (continued)
