Counting Animals Using Satellite imagery

Counting Animals Using Satellite imagery

April 28, 2021

Satellite imagery has been successfully used to detect and count a number of wildlife species in open landscapes and seascapes where target animals have a strong contrast with their environment. Tom McHugh, CEO, and Founder of The Icon Group has been working on a way for using earth observation to carry a livestock inventory in an agricultural setting.

"If you are of the mindset that data is power, and if I give away my data then I give away my power. That mindset is about 20 years out of date!"

Access to data and how it might have a dramatic impact on local economies, how we make room for unexpected contributors like Dr. John Snow, and mindset to support unrestricted access.

Introduction to Synthetic-aperture Radar (SAR)

Introduction to Synthetic-aperture Radar (SAR)

February 24, 2021

Applications of SAR include topography, oceanography, glaciology, geology (for example, terrain discrimination and subsurface imaging), and forestry, including forest height, biomass, deforestation ... the list is long.

But before you can do all that you need to know what SAR is and how it works.
