Importance of Remote Sensing
Back to remote sensing’s superpowers. Yet another aspect that makes it so compelling is its ability to collect data from dangerous or even inaccessible areas. What is more, during the era of the COVID-19 pandemic resulting in on-and-off lockdown situations; remotely monitoring a given study area is becoming more and more applicable given the current world-wide status.
Replacing slower, costly data collection on the ground with fast and repetitive coverage of extremely large areas for everyday applications, we cannot emphasize more that this is the future of responsible decision-making and disaster management.
As an unobstructive (and fuel-efficient) strategy, remote sensing allows users to collect data and perform processing and GIS analysis offsite without disturbing the very target area or object. Monitoring floods and forest fires, deforestation, crop health, encroachment, various mining aspects and even rhinos, remote sensing provides not only a global perspective, but leads accountable decision-makers towards actionable insights that would otherwise be unattainable.
Remote sensing provides vital information that improves critical decision making across industries such as agriculture, forestry, mining and city management. To find these solutions, we at Swift Geospatial are always in search of problems within industries in order to ascertain where our technology is able to provide answers.
So if you have questions regarding GIS, remote sensing and the solutions they are able to provide, or you think you have a problem within a certain industry that is not currently being addressed, please do send us an email and let’s start creating incredible remote sensing solutions.
