Sustainable agricultural & agroforestry systems
As the world's population multiplies and natural resources rapidly deplete, it has never been more imperative that we establish sustainable agricultural and agroforestry systems. RSS promotes, introduces and helps customers navigate these systems, guided by informative remote sensing, GIS modelling, in-situ measurements and surveys.
Forestry & REDD+
Sustainable forest management & carbon forestry
The role of forests in providing important ecosystems services is becoming more and more recognized at an international level.
We offer cutting-edge remote sensing and ground-based approaches to assist with all aspects of sustainable forest management and carbon forestry (REDD+, HCS). Our extensive experience ranges from the carbon-rich peat swamp forests of Indonesia to the Miombo forests of Mozambique.
Natural resources & biodiversity assessment
In an ever-changing world, the conservation of natural resources is of crucial importance.
We support conservation measures all around the world through (amongst others) ecosystem mapping, protected area planning and management, habitats directive reporting and vulnerability analyses.
Near real-time monitoring, risk & impact assessment
Communities living in hazard-prone regions may deal with reoccuring wildfires, flood events, volcanic eruptions and other devestating natural forces. In these cases, preventative measures and early warning mechanisms could mean the difference between planned evacuation and mass casualities.
Our team aims to erradicate such risks by offering customized remote sensing tools and advanced Geographic Information Sytems. These tools evaluate risk and impacts before events, provide near real-time monitoring and support during events and help assess damages following natural hazards to keep you safe.
Land use change & habitat conditions
Continuously monitoring land use change and habitat conditions is an integral part of natural resource management.
We provide independantly processed geospatial data concerning numerous environmental parameters and support customers to manage natural resources responsibly.
