This information adds a quantitative and scientific aspect to our services, which enhances our urban design projects and separates us from conventional city designers. We take an adaptive and pragmatic approach in finding the best suited satellite data for various projects.

We utilise state of the science satellite measurements to monitor the earth from space.

THEMATIC 

MAPPING 

We apply thematic mapping to satellite imagery creating time series analysis so that we can separate and understand the various layers that make up the earth’s systems. By combining specialised channel combinations, tuned to key environmental variables, we are able to monitor & track changes to Earth's systems including:


> Historical Earth Observation (EO) data collection for the use of comparative benchmarking


> Quantitative data analysis of key EO variables for the purpose of understanding earths systems prior to design intervention


> Ongoing monitoring of established thematic maps of environmental systems of the built environment 

“Changing climates” have always existed, however due to anthropogenic influences and the resulting acceleration of climate change, it is only now that we value the importance of understanding our environment for the purpose of adaptation. 


Thus to nurture our natural assets means gaining a deeper understanding of the environmental systems at play; heat fluxes, water flows, biogeochemical interactions and ecological services. This means utilising the latest available satellite technology to analyse and map large swathes of environments such as biomass, soil moisture, crop performance, turbidity and leaf index - amongst others.
