– Earth observation and geospatial data: supporting decision making in the face of a changing climate
Climate change is a multifaceted challenge requiring the analysis of a multitude of indicators. As a result, public demand for timely, useful, consistent, continuous information to assess risks, manage operations, and monitor policy and investment outcomes is growing.
Traditional earth observation (EO) technologies no longer suffice to handle large quantities of data from various sources. Ecometrica’s web-based Mapping platform combines this data and transforms it into useful decision-making information related to the environmental challenges faced by governments and organisations. The platform can be used as both an infrastructure and analysis tool, allowing decision makers to understand which areas need immediate attention and develop plans to deal with the ever-changing environment.
This presentation will explore the advantages of such tools through case studies on green cities, deforestation, and supply chain risk analysis.
