In this short technical demonstration, I’ll explore some of the ways that Planetscope’s new 8-band capabilities can be used to both detect and monitor invasive plant species, such as Watermoss-Salvinia, within water bodies. We’ll focus on the role that the 4 new spectral bands (Coastal Blue (433-453nm) , Yellow (600-620nm), Green-II (547-583nm) and Red-edge (697-713nm)) can have in this use case. I’ll compare how some spectral indices unlocked via 8-band data compare to previous 4-band, RG...

Please join us for the MDA-hosted workshop on multi-band SAR presented by MDA (Canada), Iceye (Finland) and VENG (Argentina).  After presenting SAR fundamentals, we will dive deep into the specifications of X-band (Iceye), C-band (RADARSAT-2) and L-band (SAOCOM) missions, as well as the sensors’ merit and strength in specific applications that are of relevance to Canada.  The last hour would be Q&As and discussion.

At a time of rising climate change impacts, there is a vital and growing need to prepare for, respond to, and recover from natural disasters. But there is a critical communication gap between authorities,  citizens, and communities.   Drawing on the ongoing results of our massive multi-year climate change research project, and with assistance from hundreds of students, citizens, academics, NGOs, government officials, and industry partners, Deploy Solutions has identif...
