Land Monitoring

The knowledge of the Earth´s surface is crucial for any kind of urban and environmental planning

SISTEMA during years has carried out a set of projects to exploit satellite-based information with heterogeneous data sources to support public and private entities focused on land monitoring in their daily work.

I the framework of the KLAUS project (funded by the European Space Agency), SISTEMA has developed a set of tools to support forestry management, landslide monitoring, detection of fires and burned areas, and to provide total, direct and diffuse solar irradiance information (plants production estimation, solar irradiance maps)

I the framework of the STO project (funded by the European Space Agency), the Team led by SISTEMA has developed a we-based tool where new land cover classification approaches based on topological relationships among objects are developed and applied (e.g. land cover to land use applications)
