Remote Sensing

Remote sensing refers to instrument-based techniques employed in the acquisition and measurement of spatially organized data/information on some spatial properties of an array of target points that correspond to classes, features, objects, and materials. Remote sensing makes it possible to collect data on dangerous or inaccessible areas.

GSDSSĀ  can provide specialist skills in the use of Remote Sensing technologies for services in the areas of:

  • Agriculture
  • Digitising field boundaries
  • Crop type classification
  • Land suitability
  • Natural resource management
  • Land Cover / Land Use mapping
  • Urban and regional planning
  • Land degradation
  • Urban demographic studies
  • Population distribution and densities
  • Urban open space studies
  • Market penetration and expansion studies
  • Demography and settlement mapping

GSDSSĀ  can offer specialist skills from country wide settlement mapping to detailed urban residential infrastructure mapping in support of census surveys, infrastructure and service planning to market research applications and demographic studies. Temporal spatial data provides an exceptional insight into settlement change and urban growth patterns over time.
