Ultimately what a satellite image allows us to see will depend on factors such as resolution, sensor type, processing and application. But from a fundamental level, satellite imagery provides a valuable overview of our planet and can provide insights for a broad range of industries and use cases. Satellite imagery can also provide information beyond what can be seen on the Earth’s surface, and when integrated with other data types can help us learn an enormous amount about our work and community.
Novel use cases for satellite imagery are growing at an ever increasing rate and include inventory and resources management, crime mapping, establishing and monitoring transport routes, managing networks, asset monitoring, property development and planning, agricultural crop health and harvesting, public health, fire risk monitoring, invasive species monitoring, smart city planning and monitoring, illegal fishing and border control.
