General description

Overview of Challenge

5

What is the nature of the challenge? (What is not adequately addressed at present?)

Pipeline route planning needs to accommodate ground subsidence / movement considerations.  Two phases: historical and ongoing.  Historical movement  can infer future movement patterns.  Identifying these can enable alternative routes or mitigation measures can be put in place.

6

Thematic information requirements

1. Obtain detailed topographic information,            13. Monitor ground movement,

7

Nature of the challenge - What effect does this challenge have on operations?

Influencing infrastructure planning

8

What do you currently do to address this challenge?/ How is this challenge conventionally addressed?

Optical imagery is used

9

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

Historic ground movement data could indicate potential future trends.  This could be imagery based.

10

What is your view on the capability of technology to meet this need? – are you currently using EO tech? If not, why not?

EO could be a useful complimentary technology
