General description

Overview of Challenge

5

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

We need to identify variable surfaces which will lead to a number of vibroseis trucks moving at different rates.

If this is likely to happen due to localised areas of relatively harder mobility, then the resources can be re-allocated appropriately in the plan, ensuring the survey is completed as efficiently as possible.

6

Thematic information requirements

1. Obtain detailed topographic information, 2. Obtain detailed terrain characterisation,  4. Obtain detailed land-use information,

7

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

Unforeseen changes in terrain, which may or may not be seasonal (e.g. floodland, dense vegetation/ bush), can stimulate last minute changes in survey plans.  Whilst this is manageable, it is not ideal (cost, time increases) and early foresight would help

8

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

Online imagery, ground survey teams

9

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

Layered EO imagery with details of prevailing ground conditions

10

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

The right products could offer a highly valuable solution
