Earth observation (or remote sensing) is the gathering of information about planet Earth's physical, chemical and biological systems, usually employing, but not restricted to satellite and airborne sensors. Often, remote sensing data are further processed in Geographic Information Systems (GIS). A GIS allows the visualization, query, analysis and interpretation of geographical data to understand spatial relationships, patterns and trends. Data and the outcomes of data processing are used to map, monitor and assess the status of and changes in the natural and built environments.
In a wide range of remote sensing and GIS based projects space4environment has proven expertise ranging from digital to visual image processing via spatial data analysis to the making of high-quality maps, web services or business intelligence. By utilizing the full strength of functionalities of geoinformation systems and image interpretation software suites a multitude of information is gained out of the data depending on the customers’ needs.
From mapping ecosystems types based on field trips over semi-automatically derived land-cover or land-use maps to analysis of grazing patterns and movement habits of animal by tracking technologies space4environment provides the full chain of earth observation and spatial analysis work.
