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.





By utilising satellite imagery to map environmental variables every five days. We work with time series analysis so that we can separate and understand the various layers that make up the earth’s systems. This means that across satellite observations we can begin to analyse and visualise trends & patterns within nature which have been previously unseen. In this way, the scientific data can underpin policies such as urban forests, greening and climate change adaptation.We can further design our cities within this time series data to ensure the built environment increases the value of envrionmental indices.

> Benchmarking of indices for policy purposes

> Pixel drilling across observations quantifying patterns & trends for city planning purposes

> Ongoing monitoring of established thematic maps of environmental systems across 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 'living infrastructure' (nature) means gaining a deeper understanding of the environmental systems at play; vegetation cover, heat fluxes, water flows, soil saturation and ecological services. This means we work closely with our sister company Office of Planetary Observations to utilise frequent satellite Earth Observations within the city design process.
