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 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.
