Because more and more people are living in cities, this means that cities are growing and changing all the time. To manage this growth, we need to monitor change detection in cities to see what’s happening and what we need to do. Change detection monitoring means comparing pictures of cities taken from satellites or planes at different times to see what has changed, like new buildings, land use changes, or changes in green areas.
Using daily high resolution satellite imagery, we are able to monitor illegal dwelling encroachment into areas around power lines, pipelines, roads and servitude areas regarding municipal infrastructure. Aside from the illegal use of land and encroachment on servitudes being a violation of property rights, illegal encroachment into areas such as power lines and pipelines can pose a serious safety risk to individuals living in those areas as well as the surrounding communities.
The idea behind regenerative agriculture is to create a cycle of life that supports both the plants and the animals on the farm, and also helps the environment around it. For example, healthy soil can store more carbon from the air, which is good for the climate. It can also hold more water, which is good for preventing droughts and floods.
Our Geospatial Forestry Platform is designed to package forestry monitoring solutions into a a set of easy to digest online dashboards that are straightforward and customizable. Essentially, the GFP delivers a ‘one-stop-shop’ for your tree monitoring requirements.
Swift Geospatial are proud to launch their essential forest monitoring and geographic information system (GIS) aptly named, The Geospatial Forestry Platform.
Climate change: new rules for companies to help limit global deforestation - Swift Geospatial is positioned to assist in providing data and analytics in combating deforestation and providing traceability.
Swift Geospatial is powered by incredible technology. To some it may seem supernatural at times; and with constant advancements each year we are only starting to appreciate the wonderful benefits of remote sensing. But just what is remote sensing? It is commonly described as the process of detecting and monitoring the physical characteristics of an area by measuring its reflected and emitted radiation at a distance. Our latest blog article delves into further detail to explain just what it is that we do at Swift Geospatial.
Whoever you are, you need Geographic Information Systems (GIS) to improve your management schemes and to make smarter decisions. Period. Knowing where things happen matters not only to your business, but also to our livelihood on earth in its most basic form. Geography is cooler than you think: it is shaping the world around us.
Using the best satellite imagery technology currently has to offer, Swift Geospatial can assist with cost-effective, time-saving strategies, including disaster prevention. In this article we focus on monitoring for mine management and how our high quality imagery empowers one not only for decision making purposes; but also to detect - with immediate effect - if any risks or triggers are activated as and when they happen.
Monitoring your mine’s Tailings Storage Facility (TSF) is not merely a legal requirement, but a life or death responsibility. After all, the horrific (and fairly recent) case studies of TSF mismanagement catastrophes bear witness to the paramount importance thereof. Enter Swift Geospatial’s innovative methodology for TSF monitoring. Using the latest, most streamlined, high resolution and cloud-free satellite imagery technology available to date; time-savvy mining managers may remotely check their tailings dam status on a weekly basis.
