How Maps Derived from Imagery Help Gov Understand the Whole Story

  • Training Date:
  • Training Time:

If a picture paints a thousand words, a map paints a million. Maps help us analyze and derive information that shapes policies, educates us about our environments and informs decisions that affect millions of citizens’ lives. In government this ability to derive information is especially critical.

Imagery analysis methods like change detection help provide critical data for environmental monitoring and natural resource management. Beach erosion, melting ice caps and forest fires are types of change detection analysis that can be done to offer a new view into how the land has transformed over time. Just consider the value of these maps for firefighters facing wildfire outbreaks in California or floods in Colorado.

Join us for an on-demand training to hear how governments can take advantage of these tools.

Specifically you’ll learn:

  • About the evolution of satellites and aerial photography over the past decades.
  • How the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is piloting a drone program to map beach erosion.
  • Some of the biggest challenges governments face when implementing a mapping strategy at their organization.
