Natural Resources Management

“Space applications already play an important role in the areas of natural resources management and environmental observations or assessments. […] Remotely sensed data, in particular, provide an unparalleled view of the Earth for studies that require synoptic or periodic observations such as inventory, surveying, agriculture, hydrology, geology, mountain ecological studies, mineralogy, land cover or land use. Space-derived information, its analysis and its visualization, offer substantial input into decision-making processes throughout the world today, and can become even more critical in actions developed towards achieving internationally agreed sustainable development goals, in line with ongoing efforts to define those goals in the post-2015 development agenda.” (UNOOSA, 2019)
