Remote Sensing Services

GIS Remote Sensing Services UK & 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 land 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 team of Remote Sensing Analysts have experience working with multiple imagery sources including many of the most commonly used open source and proprietary Remote Sensing software packages and platforms. 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?

    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.
