Earth Observation is used where decision-making requires insight about things that happen in remote locations, across multiple locations or over broad areas; often across the globe. This geospatial insight typically involves changes that happen over time.
There is a huge range of industries and applications for which Earth Observation can help with decision making. For example, it is commonly used to monitor:
Enhanced decision making in the metals and minerals industries, based on production activity.
Remote sensing and real-time data improves decision-making, improving crop yields and reducing production costs.
Military reconnaissance, detection systems for defence, geospatial intelligence & national security applications.
Enhanced land and carbon management decision making for government organisations, as well as law enforcement.
Monitoring of production capacity and supply chains for particular industries.
Monitoring state and organisation locations for potential infrastructure problems.
High quality, very high-resolution mapping services.
We help companies and governments make better decisions by providing them with geospatial insight, at global scale, simply and at low cost.
