Satellite images at the service of environmental monitoring
Remote sensing aims at studying the surface of the earth from images taken by airborne cameras placed in a drone, an airplane or a satellite. The results of the latter make it possible to improve the inventory, management and forecasting of natural, agricultural and environmental resources, by making available to managers and decision-makers, localized information collected in the field that sometimes turns out to be costly. MAPTOGIS engineers are at your disposal to define the needs for satellite image analysis.
Satellite images to define natural occupations or land use by humans. The precise knowledge of these is a crucial issue for many operational applications, particularly in land management.
VEGETATION / SOIL INDICES
Vegetation and soil indices make it possible to identify and monitor environmental dynamics and soil degradation. These indicators support your actions related to climate change.
It makes it possible to highlight the evolution of phenomena through the comparison of data from classifications of satellite images on the same area for a given time interval, and to analyze the factors acting on the evolution of ecosystems.
Examples of our remote sensing projects
As part of the PADER program, calculation and evolution of the vegetation index in northern Cameroon between 2008 and 2018.
Analysis and control of the environment evolution. Mangrove mapping by remote sensing in New Caledonia.
Detailed pre-project studies on the mobilization of ground and surface water in the Guera region (GIS part hydrogeological mapping, watersheds ...)
Urban environmental emergency management project (PUGEMU), definition of unbuildable flood zones.
