Satellite-based change detection of Welsh habitats
Environment Systems talks to WISE Network
Environment Systems is a leading environmental and geographic intelligence consultancy. The company works across the UK, Europe and beyond delivering solutions across the environmental, agricultural and land sectors.
The company specialises in the application of earth observation technologies, designing and delivering monitoring systems, and are experts in the field of ecosystems services mapping and modeling.
The project between WISE Network and Environment Systems is a collaboration to develop a method to update habitat maps produced by Environment Systems using a range of satellite sensors and looking ahead to adapting the techniques to the use of the ESA Sentinel II coming online in 2014.
In a separate development, investigations are underway on the potential take-up of Dr Pete Bunting’s open source software which is expected to develop into a collaboration on a KTP in early 2014.
“We have greatly benefited from our engagement with the WISE Network programme and look forward to making further progress in both reducing the impact of our operations and extending our offer to those who are hard-to-reach.”
