Remote Sensing & GIS 



Remote Sensing and GIS are vital tools used for planning and designing of any project of any magnitude. Remote Sense data is an economic option compared compared with other methods of data collection, for instance satellite imagery can be obtain at affordable price compare to Arial photography  or site visits. 

we can design geodatabases for different applications and customize to specific projects.  GIS is very powerful tool will help in the decision making process based on spatial problems.  

Some of the applications include:

  • Controlling Outbreaks. 
  • Land Management 
  • Environmental Monitoring
  • Planning and Design Built Environments 
  • Change Detection
  • Sustainable Development
  • Land Tax Management 

 

Contact us, if you require any of these services, we can and we will provide you the best solution for your project .

 

 

Whats is Remote Sensing?

Remote sensing usually refers to the technology of acquiring information about the earth’s surface (land and ocean) and atmosphere using sensors onboard airborne atmosphere using sensors onboard airborne (aircraft, UAVs and balloons) or spaceborne (satellites and space shuttles) platforms.

Applications for Remote Sensing?

There is wide range of applications where remote sensing is applicable. Some of the 3rd dimensions collected by sensors are :

  • Parallax - Height/ Elevation
  • Radar/Lidar – Range – Height/Elevation
  • Sea surface temperature, Water Quality
  • Vegetation Index, Stress
  • Leaf Area Index
  • Soil pattern, geology, moisture and etc

 

 

 

 

Move the slider to visualize the changes in vegetation and topographical features, of Kaashidhoo island  over a period 4 years.  Satellite imagery is very useful to detect the changes in an area of interest. 

What is  GIS? 

Geographic Information System is a system designed to capture, store, manipulate, analyze, manage, and present all types of geographical data. The acronym GIS is sometimes used for geographical information science or geospatial information studies to refer to the academic discipline or career of working with geographic information systems. In the simplest terms, GIS is the merging of cartography, statistical analysis, and database technology.

GIS is mostly used to handle wide range of data sources such as aerial photo, satellite imagery, topographic maps, bathymetry , lidar , DEM and etc, are analyze together in layers to find solutions to issue. 

Application of GIS

Some of the applications of GIS are:

  • Flood modeling
  • Cadastre- Land Management
  • Cartography 
  • Multiple Criteria Decision Analysis
  • Geostatistics
  • Topological Modeling
  • Geometrical Modeling
