The new Hexagon Geospatial CHEST Agreement for academic and research institutions in the UK and Ireland is ready for renewal and due to be in place this month. It has been great working with Hexagon and the CHEST teams again to review the offering and to work out how we can tailor the bundles to meet the changing needs of universities, colleges and research institutions across our region.
With over a decade’s experience in developing bespoke solutions for clients in the insurance, investment, and finance sectors, we were ideally placed when a South American banking group asked how remotely sensed data may enhance their risk management processes and improve their credit lending decision-making for agricultural customers.
Atlantic Hurricane Season 2021 is now very much underway, with the official season kicking off on June 1st. Predictions across the board are anticipating another above-normal season, and similarities with last year’s activity can already been seen with the first named storm, Ana, forming before-schedule, on May 22nd.
The Atlantic Hurricane Season 2020 finished up with a record-breaking number of named storms for the fifth consecutive year. With Hurricane Season 2021 fast approaching, it is hard not to anticipate another very active season, with trends from the last decade showing a dramatic increase in season length and in storm numbers and intensity.
Capella Space launched its first operation satellite, Capella-2, in August 2020 and now provides very high resolution (50cm) SAR imagery for any location in the world. With access to high quality imagery, a critical component of the needs of Geospatial Insight’s extensive client base, the cementing of a reseller partnership with Capella, which was announced earlier this year, was an obvious decision to further extend our capabilities in the delivery of global event response and asset intelligence.
As hydrology is the study of the distribution and movement of water both on and below the Earth’s surface, as well as the impact of human activity on water availability and conditions, it not surprising that remotely sensed imagery from both air and satellite has long been recognised as a valuable information source for data creation and modelling.
Hexagon Geospatial’s M.App Enterprise provides a unified geospatial platform that enables users to create applications that suit the specific needs and requirements of all users; from managers to GIS experts and field workers.
The Atlantic season 2020 has now officially come to a close with a record-breaking 30 named storms, of which 6 developed into major hurricanes. The season began earlier than expected with Tropical Storm Arthur forming in mid-May and closed with major Hurricane Iota last month.
Using a data-driven approach, is there another way to gather up-to-date information without putting the person at risk? In scientific terms, “Remote sensing is the process of detecting and monitoring the physical characteristics of an area or object by measuring its reflected and emitted tradition at a distance.”
