What we do

Consultancy and project support

We offer comprehensive and targeted consultancy to international development agencies, non-government organizations (NGOs), and other companies, to maximize the use of earth observation for agricultural projects around the world. We support your projects with innovative, cost-efficient and science grade geospatial assessments.

Ready to go products

Building on years of experience, we use a broad spectrum of geospatial technology, including state of the art machine/deep learning and cloud computing technology, to deliver robust and science grade products in a range of areas – either as part of our consultancy or as on-demand products – from pre-processed satellite images to thematic maps.

Capacity development & Training

We provide capacity building and on-the-job training in the use of Geographical Information Systems (GIS) and satellite earth observation technologies. We support your field survey planning and sampling.

Agriculture & rural development

By using satellite imagery, assessing and monitoring of agricultural production becomes much easier — be it single fields, or entire landscapes. It is a powerful tool for spatial information on the land’s condition and to support land and water ressource management.

OUR SERVICES

MAPPING

Maps of cropland extent, crop types, crop rotation, farmland parcel delineation.

MONITORING & HISTORICAL ANALYSIS

Monitoring of crop conditions and growth to support more efficient farming practises, or monitoring of cultivated areas and crop types, including associated bio-physical indicators

Monitoring & evaluation

Most projects in the field of technical or financial cooperation will have a requirement for environmental and social impact assessment. Satellite data, online surveys and geocoding make it easy to collect data. This simplifies ex-post evaluations, especially in regions that are difficult or impossible to reach. With satellite archives dating back for decades, retrospective assessments become feasible.
