Our service combines VHR and HR satellite data and can be replicated to a variety of situations.
Our EO-based solution strives to:
1-Detect monthly changes in the exclusion buffer (200m) of the gas mains, due to:
Oil spils, and
Encroachment, due to construction works of other operators
2-Monitor infrastructure integrity and environmental affections for correction and remediation.

The monthly product informs of the following changes, found within the 100m buffer of the client’s infrastructure
-Inventory of each man-made land change with side comments
-Inventory of each oil pollution change with side comments
- Map of the land condition at the given date
- Map of land changes detected between the present and the previous date
- Map of cumulative oil effects
- Statistics of the areas affected by changes.
The end client is provided with:
a) A list of each and every change detected with correspondent x, y coordinates
b) A printable map report of each and every change detected monthly, with a level of confidence
c) Digital cartographic information of changes through WMS and GDB.
Delivery takes about a working week upon image reception, under non-rush conditions.
Results are validated on the ground by the end client and corrections ingested in the next iteration.
