Use Cases for Earth Observation

Earth Observation is used where decision-making requires insight about things that happen in remote locations, across multiple locations or over broad areas; often across the globe.  This geospatial insight typically involves changes that happen over time.

There is a huge range of industries and applications for which Earth Observation can help with decision making.  For example, it is commonly used to monitor:

  • Understanding climate change
  • Monitoring our environment
  • Border surveillance
  • Civilian security
  • Responding to natural disasters
  • Monitoring global stock-piles and commodities production
Use Cases
