Environment

Remotely sensed data is proving increasingly important for a host of environmental challenges. Improvements in computer power and GIS analysis, coupled with a new generation of high resolution aerial survey cameras and sensors, have expanded the uses for remotely sensed data. From baseline data to detecting change over time, potential uses are wide ranging and include:

Terrestrial

  • Asset management
  • Facility and transmission siting
  • Line modeling
  • Planimetrics
  • Avian of raptor nest management
  • Right of way encroachment detection
  • Terrain and topographic analysis
  • Thermal discharge and plume mapping
  • Vegetation management
  • Wetland and habitat mapping
  • Wildlife and exotic species mapping

Freshwater

  • Construction monitoring
  • Environmental monitoring
  • HCA ID and class location
  • Pipe leakage
  • Planimetrics
  • Right of way encroachment detection
  • Siting
  • Wetland and habitat mapping
  • Terrain and topographic analysis
  • Vegetation management
  • Wildlife and exotic species mapping

Coastal and Marine

  • Asset management
  • Avian and marine wildlife assessment
  • Bathymetric surveys
  • Boat and anthropogenic use studies
  • Facility and transmission siting
