6 Spectral Indexes To Make Vegetation Analysis Complete
Did you know there is at least a hundred other spectral indexes, except NDVI (Normalized Difference Vegetation Index), that are widely used to analyze vegetation?
But global problems can only be addressed by suitable tools. EOS Data Analytics provides a detailed look at Earth for a better understanding of the challenges facing our planet. We detect critical transformations and provide the information necessary to allocate and distribute resources where they are most needed. With this knowledge, organizations can build effective strategies for CSR projects that aim to improve prosperity and the planet's wellbeing.
EOS Data Analytics products offer actionable insights derived from geospatial data to help companies minimize their influence on the environment and address pressing challenges. Companies with CSRs can target such problems as pollution and climate change, and their consequential issues: droughts, floods, wildfires, rising sea levels, etc. Additionally, our satellite observation technologies monitor ice coverage in the northern regions of Earth to understand what can and should be done to stop permafrost melting.
Our solutions give organizations a clear understanding of the situation with air pollution. They also provide powerful knowledge on how to reduce fossil fuel dependence and contribute to the adoption of renewable sources of energy. EOSDA technology effectively performs solar panel assessment by using proprietary algorithms based on remote sensing imagery analysis. Thanks to these algorithms, companies can participate in projects tracking solar plant numbers and calculate their area, average performance, and more. And with the application of object recognition technology, EOS Data Analytics can provide a reliable analysis of wind farm productivity.
EOSDA advanced technologies allow businesses, governments, and NGOs to monitor the state of forests and provide data for efficient forest management. By analyzing that data, organizations can identify the reasons for deforestation: fires, illegal logging, and/or inadequate supervision of woodland areas. With geospatial terrain analysis, they can reasonably and effectively devise and implement reforestation projects. And by using an interactive map built on high-resolution satellite imagery, organizations can improve the condition of the Earth’s lungs – based on vegetation indices, tree mortality histories, potentially dangerous zones, and recommendations on planting and growing forests.
Crop monitoring, relying on the latest satellite imagery combined with powerful analytical tools, can uncover valuable insights that allow farmers to save time and reduce production costs. Moreover, this technology enables sustainable agriculture methods. With precise weather prediction and individual field productivity assessments, growers can minimize the use of synthetic fertilizers and protect yields without artificial means. And with zoning, farmers get an accurate outlook on the needs of a field by judging performance in different areas. As a result, fertilizer and irrigation can benefit from pinpoint and targeted applications, thanks to that data.
The lack of reliable drinking water is one of the challenges brought on by industrial activities and climate change. And to guarantee water sustainability, we need to optimize its use. Traditional general analyses often fall short, as they do not take into account the differing circumstances of water consumers. However, EOSDA land classification technologies tackle this challenge by categorizing facilities based on water consumption, evaporation volumes, etc. This analysis reveals actual water use, highlights the entities that consume water responsibly – and those that abuse it. Our unique monitoring tool based on SAR and optical imagery analyses track Water Level Dynamics, Salinity Dynamics, Clearness Dynamics, and more.
Numerous industries from logistics to tourism have ocean-related business activities. Each of them impacts the quality of life in the marine ecosystem. EOSDA technology can find, assess, and assist in minimizing such influences. We process images from Earth Remote Sensing to detect large accumulations of inorganic waste in the ocean. This allows organizations to clean this debris from the ocean, and positively affect its health. Our technologies can also provide effective solutions for addressing oil spills by using Synthetic Aperture Radar to identify oil slicks fast to avert critical damage.
We utilize advanced technologies that protect and restore the environment. EOS Data Analytics is constantly working to identify new opportunities to preserve nature. And our findings can help all organizations, big and small, become part of the solution. With our research teams, businesses can find optimal ways to reduce waste production and resource consumption. We provide data that can enable companies to construct green buildings and consume energy responsibly.
EOS Data Analytics already has proven experience in working with projects that ensure low and zero waste principles across industries. First, EOSDA supports initiatives for organic farming. This approach, among others, incorporates recycled natural waste for fertilization. EOS Data Analytics is also a proud member of the Goldeneye Project. This ambitious EU project aims at collecting geospatial data on mining – not only to improve productivity and safety, but also to monitor their environmental impact.
Seeing is believing. And in the case of climate change solutions, it’s also informing ourselves on the ongoing processes that will define all of our futures. Consistent image quality and extensive coverage of modern remote sensing allow us to capture and keep an eye on how landscapes change. Once this information is gathered and processed by powerful machine learning algorithms, organizations can have a full picture of climate change, as well as actionable intelligence about the reasons for such transformations. With this, we can all devise best practices for preventing changes, and undoing harm.
