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.



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


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

Remote Planning, 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.



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


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


Project region targeting, dentification of land in need of project intervention (e.g. degraded land)


Support projects addressing the sustainable development goals
