Auracle applies the latest techniques in satellite imagery processing and analysis to monitor the environment and to track changes in natural resources and environmental conditions over time and large areas.
PROCESS: Auracle documents current and historical environmental conditions, naturally occurring or human-induced, by integrating results of satellite image analyses into a GIS platform.
Create baselines for change detection through comparison with future imagery.
Assess potential impact in select areas.
BENEFITS: Accurately track and predict the impact of environmental contaminants.
PROCESS: Auracle transforms raw satellite data into detailed spatial analysis.
USES: Monitor and be alerted to:
water deficiency or surplus
hail and wind damage.
BENEFITS: Learn about the health and condition of soils and crops before they can be visually identified. Monitoring can be conducted at scales ranging from national to individual fields.
PROCESS: Repetitive and non-intrusive monitoring of natural and man-made changes over time.
mapping of ice fields, internal waves, and eddies
detecting oil spills
classifying and mapping habitat
mapping the bottom topography of shallow water
BENEFITS: Our change detection results are cost-effective tools for assessing, managing and protecting coastal resources in estuaries, harbors, lakes and swamps.
PROCESS: Using orthorectified satellite images and specialized image processing, Auracle conducts direct observation of large areas of forested land.
USES: Auracle's land cover mapping and change detection algorithms support the forestry industry to:
monitor the ecosystem and species diversity,
discriminate and classify forest types
update existing forest inventories
complete terrain analyses
BENEFITS: Health monitoring and the creation of GIS data.
CONTAMINATION DETECTION AND MONITORING
Compare and assess potential impacts of activities in selected areas.
