What we do

Consultancy and project support

We offer comprehensive and targeted consultancy to international development agencies, non-government organizations (NGOs), and other companies, on the appropriate use of satellite earth observation technology. We focus on projects in the fields of agriculture and environment 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 strengthening & 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.

It is a powerful tool for providing geospatial information on the status of agricultural land, tracking productivity in space and time, and identifying opportunities for increasing productivity.

MAPPING

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

MONITORING & HISTORICAL ANALYSIS

Tracing plant health and growth in space and time, recording agricultural production,  monitoring the effects of agricultural management

Monitoring and evaluation

We help you to assess decades of archived data in order to bring the historical perspective into your projects (“learning from the past”) and to understand the response of agricultural and other land ecosystems to project interventions or other impacts.

EVALUATION

Support evaluation of projects under financial or technical cooperation, supporting ex-post assessments and impact measurement

REPORTS

Objective and comprehensive reports with historic and status assessments qantitative facts to support evaluation

PROJECT AREA IDENTIFICATION
