Environmental policies require detailed information of the state of land habitats in order to implement effective conservation strategies. Satellite derived habitat mapping provides this information quickly compared to traditional survey methods, giving a snapshot of the state of environments.
- The landscape can be categorised using automated classification processes, combined with mapping generalisation rules
- A varying level of detail can be provided depending upon end application
- Repeat satellite tasking can be carried out for continuous monitoring and change detection
- Minimal use of ground survey teams & equipment
