This month, we look at the global collection of commercial optical and radar imagery collected by satellite image suppliers during the last year in order to pick out interesting patterns and insights.
This month, we look at the distribution of very high resolution (VHR) optical imagery collected by image suppliers during the last year, in order to pick out interesting patterns and insights. The picture above shows a heat map of Very High Resolution (VHR) image acquisitions in the year 2016. The “warmer” (red/yellow) the spot the higher […]
An important task for Geocento in acting as an independent provider of satellite imagery has been in helping users to navigate some of the complexities of ordering imagery.
By far the majority of users of Geocento’s EarthImages platform search for optical imagery. Very few consider using radar imagery. Given its undoubted advantages in terms of being able to see the Earth’s surface through cloud, why is it not used more?
The world continues to get sharper in focus as a number of suppliers move closer towards offering imaging capabilities in the range 0.25-0.5m.
Insurance companies worldwide are going to different lengths to assess the claims made for damages.

Satellite imagery is becoming increasingly utilised in an ever-growing range of applications, however some recent research has been brought to our attention which uses a range of satellite data to monitor changes in coral reef habitats in Bunaken, Indonesia.
Drone and UAVs (Unmanned Air Vehicles) are being increasingly employed to complement the imaging capabilities of satellites.
