Land Use

Track Land Use Trends and Changes: The Earth changes continuously. Your maps should reflect those important human-made and natural environmental changes.

Monitor Land Use Change with High Cadence at Scale

With Orbital Insight GO, you can map and monitor infrastructure and environmental trends and changes with high cadence.

Whether manmade or natural, you'll be able to quickly quantify land use trends and the changes to the Earth's surface as they occur.

With GO, you are able to track changes to:

  • Buildings
  • Roads and parking lots
  • Fields, grasslands, and agriculture
  • Planted and natural forests
  • Mining
  • Bodies of water

Infrastructure Mapping

Manual efforts to detect land use trends and changes are expensive, not scalable, or not permitted. With the power of machine learning and cloud computing, GO eliminates these problems.

In addition, you'll be able to combine land use results with other Orbital Insight data sources such as cell phone geolocation data to deliver greater value.

Land Use Tracking Examples

  • Monitor national infrastructure projects with geopolitical significance such as the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI).
  • Map countrywide roads and buildings for autonomous vehicle training or ride-hailing services.
  • Detect facility construction, new bases, roads, etc. for national security insights.
  • Monitor deforestation; differentiate between virgin and planted forest as an indicator of illegal activity.

Orbital Insight GO enables you to provide a timely spatial data infrastructure (SDI) regardless of geography, for example rural or urban, and with a single consistent methodology.
