Remote Sensing Services

GIS Remote Sensing Services Ireland

We provide a range of Remote Sensing and image interpretation services that can help any organisation to leverage the benefits from satellite and aerial imagery.

Thanks to government programmes such as Landsat and Copernicus alongside the rise in commercial drone operations, satellite and aerial imagery in accessible like never before. These resources have helped to open a wealth of data that can be used to unlock information about the health, state and lasd uses of our planet. By utilising the many available sources of Remote Sensing data, we can ensure that the best available imagery is analysed to meet your specific requirements.

Our highly experienced team of Remote Sensing Specialists can process imagery, using classification, orthorectification, mosaicking, re-projection and image interpretation techniques to help provide greater insights and detailed analysis of your physical landscape. If you have a Remote Sensing project you require support with or don't know where to start, get in touch to see how our experts can help.

What is Remote Sensing?

  • What is Remote Sensing?

    What is Remote Sensing?

    Remote Sensing is the observation of objects or areas from a distances, usually from aircraft, drones or satellites, to obtain detailed information about them. The classification and analysis of captured imagery can lead to the establishment of information regarding the surface and subsurface of our planet.

    Remote Sensing techniques open new windows into the unseen world via sensors which detect energy that is reflected from the Earth. The spectral and spatial characteristics of such data contains invaluable information regarding land use and land cover, helping to provide a detailed assessment into issues such as the health of vegetation, the salinity of rivers and streams or lead to the discovery of new sites ideal for mineral exploration.

    Unmanned Aerial Vehicles

    Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) and drones have become an ever-present part of modern life and their increasing commercial viability is presenting new opportunities for the field of Remote Sensing.

    UAVs and drones are filling the void between satellite imagery and ground surveying, offering high resolution imagery alongside the ability to cover very specific areas of interest. Their scale and affordability enable them to be deployed at short notice to capture an area at a specific point in time, something which satellite imagery cannot guarantee. This has enabled drone imagery to provide benefits across different applications, such as precision agriculture, change mapping, disaster risk management, habitat monitoring and the mapping of coastline or soil erosion.

    At Mallon Technology, our experienced team of Remote Sensing Specialists can process imagery from a UAV or drone to help you identify any changes or issues affecting your landscape to ensure that you can use the information to take informed and important decisions.
