 Identify restricted areas that must be avoided

 

Challenge ID:

HCP-1214

Originator:

Onshore: Hatfield

Title:

Identify restricted areas that must be avoided.

Theme:

ON 1.2: Seismic Planning - Identification of adverse terrain for trafficability

Consortium Lead:

RPS Group

Interviewed Company:

RPS Group

Geography:

ON.REG.00 - Generic onshore

Challenge Description

What is not possible / not adequately addressed at present?

Military installations, airports, electricity plants, UXO and ERW contaminated areas etc. are all areas that generally need to be excluded from a survey plan or may require specific measures in place to acquire nearby. Pre-identifying these areas helps with survey line planning and positioning.

What effect does this challenge have on operations?

Discovering "no-go" areas during an operation leaves limited opportunites to adjust survey layout to achieve optimal results.

Thematic information requirements:

Ortho base images

Distribution and status of infrastructure

Land Use

UXO hazard

What do you currently do to address this challenge? 

How is this challenge conventionally addressed?

Extensive use of Google Earth and other equivalents, but the imagery may not always be current. Some use of historical imagery data, like Corona.

What kind of solutions do you envisage could address this challenge?

Combination of current satellite imagery and historical imagery to identify areas. Time lapse imagery provides an opportunity to look at temporal variations.

What is your view on the capability of technology to meet this need?

Are you currently using EO tech? If not, why not?

Regularly archived high resolution imagery. Interested in potential solutions if timeliness and accuracy can be ensured.
