On October 4, 2022, at 10 AM PT/7 PM CET, EOS Data Analytics, a global provider of AI-powered satellite imagery analytics, and Greenpeace will host a free webinar. The event will focus on space technologies’ role in tackling issues connected with the impact of anthropogenic activities on the environment.
The presenters will discuss how using satellite imagery analytics helps reach sustainable resource management in everyday life and agricultural production and monitor changes in forest land use. The webinar will last approximately 1.5 hours.
Agribusinesses, forestry companies, GIS specialists and students, eco-activists and representatives of environmental organizations, space enthusiasts, journalists, and everyone interested in the influence of human activities on the physical environment will find the event useful.
Registration is openSign up
Global challenges, such as loss of biodiversity, environment contamination, weather extremes induced by climate change, and food insecurity, require jointly agreed actions by governments, the private sector, and individuals. Sustainability is the core principle of optimizing resource consumption and production.
The webinar presenters will be:
- Sergio Domingo, Campaign Researcher for Greenpeace Andino (Argentina)
- Rim Elijah, VP of Sales at EOSDA
- Vera Petryk, Chief Marketing Officer at EOSDA
- Brijesh Thoppil, Director of Strategic Partnerships at EOSDA
Speakers and hosts will discuss the following topics:
- Environmental challenges in Argentina observed by Greenpeace: Deforestation in the Gran Chaco Americano forest, EOSDA LandViewer for monitoring changes in land use.
- EOSDA Academic Outreach Program to drive the company’s sustainability mission.
- The importance of precision agriculture for meeting the growing demand for food and reducing environmental footprint: Use cases.
- The EOS SAT satellite constellation for solving agriculture tasks.
Rainforests in South America — biodiversity hotspots — have been disappearing for decades due to deforestation. In particular, the second largest forest region on the continent, Chaco Forest, is one of the most deforested areas in the world. Our task at Greenpeace is to keep the forest under watch and notify scientists and the general public about the situation via reports, articles, and social media posts. EOSDA LandViewer has been a great help to the team. We use it to obtain satellite images of the area for analysis. I’m excited to tell more about our experience working with satellite imagery data during the webinar.
Sergio Domingo,Campaign Researcher for Greenpeace Andino (Argentina)
We have researched the market demand for satellite data and decided to fill the data gap by building an agri-focused satellite swarm, EOS SAT. The constellation is designed considering the specifics of farmland and forest monitoring. For instance, satellites’ cameras will have 11 to 13 agri-related spectral bands. That way, end-users will be able to source imagery with clearly captured objects of interest and evaluate their condition against the criteria for each task. The deployment of EOS SAT satellites into orbit will allow our specialists to manage the full data cycle internally. That means having full control over data acquisition, processing, and analysis.
