Mapping, Feature extraction, Monitoring provides monitoring of fires from satellites.

Fires; burnt scars; damage; forest fire risk; fire extent; Climate

Product Description provides monitoring of fires from satellites. We use mostly free Earth observation data form the Sentinel fleet and from NASA and Eumetsat, as well as weather and climate data from different providers. All data are automatically downloaded and processed in a cloud environment and delivered to the user through our platform. offers a web mapping and information interface, provides the products for download in the desired format and features a reporting ready fire statistics on user defined areas of interest. Using NASA MODIS and Landsat data we provide time series of over ten years for fire baseline assessment. Coupling Earth observation and weather data we provide online modelling of fire behaviour and fire risk. We currently develop a mobile app for offline use of

With AutoMap, the handling of satellite images has never been easier! We simplify the production of maps based on earth observation data and handle the application of machine learning algorithms for land surface classifications by providing a solid data processing pipeline in a fully managed cloud infrastructure. Bring your own samples or use our default solution, while we take care of the thousands of images that fit your request, all the clouds in your area of interest and every aspect of process optimization and secure data storage. Don't worry about machine learning concepts, intelligent training data collection, hyperparameter optimization or informative feature spaces - That's our job as well! Seeing the world from above is now as demanding as ordering a pizza!

LCA stands for Land Cover Analysis and is used to provide an up to date, digital overview of what covers the surface of our earth split out into 10 key land cover classes. The LCA is often the first step in many environmental monitoring or site selection processes.

NEO signals changes to agriculture parcels. Monitoring, based on satellite imagery in combination with artificial intelligence, aims to detect changes in the boundaries of the parcels. The service saves time and money because, based on the mutation signalling, parcels can be looked at more specifically to determine the new parcel boundaries. This supports the process of keeping the national LPIS (Land Parcel Identification System) registry up to date. The service that NEO provides is unique: it is the first time that mutation signalling based on earth observation is performed automatically on this scale. In this way the 500.000 parcels in the Netherlands are monitored. Open data from the national satellite data portal in the Netherlands is used.
