Earth Observation

EO data today should be a more attractive proposition than it has previously been. We are at a turning point, spatial and spectral resolution is improving and temporal coverage is reaching levels never previously reached. There has never been a better time to look into utilising EO data for your projects.

Three reasons to look at EO data again

How low can EO go?

Machine Learning

Machine Learning using Earth Observation is the new frontier. The change is in the quantity and quality of data. Copernicus and Landsat data are freely available to the public. The number of high resolution images (sub 1m pixels) is increasing and the price is falling.

Permitting and Land Seismic Operations

Permit databases, ones that list landowners and contain information about whether permission has been granted or not, are very useful in planning a seismic survey. GIS presents an efficient way of working with permits.
