General description

Overview of Challenge

5

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

The re-vegetation of a development site is a good indicator of ecosystem recovery.  As it occurs over long time periods, monitoring this remotely is an advantage to us.

6

Thematic information requirements

3. Obtain detailed vegetation information,

7

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

It is important, for both our reputation and obligation to the environment,  that we do all we can to ensure that the impact our activity has on the environment is minimised.

8

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

Out of date or poorly detailed basemaps are used.

9

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

Very high to medium resolution EO data to monitor changes of the environment.

 

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
