“You’d rather have something and not need it, than need something and not have it”
Commercial Satellites are flexible and reactive, but timing is critical. High resolution satellites are not limited to predictable, regular, and set patterns the way the larger swath and lower detailed sensors such as Landsat and Sential are. They have capabilities to look where they are programmed and react to the needs given to them. The possibility of obtaining new imagery of a given location are high but in a given time frame can be difficult in some cases due to the satellite location in orbit. While there are vast archive data options, if a need is anticipated, then the best choice is to schedule imagery collections of the site in advance.
Advance tasking can help mitigate disasters, track critical mining resources, monitor construction site progress and airport operations. Our one-stop shop for geospatial data solutions allows you to prepare for future events by extracting actionable data from a project site before it's urgently needed - saving time, eliminating errors, improving decision-making, and generating desirable outcomes. You can apply advance tasking to imagery and 3D data of the area's terrain and structures. Since documenting the terrain before and after an event requires stereo imagery source for the elevation data, advance tasking can ensure you are able to document both scenarios.
