Forest and Environment
Global sea-level rise affects human populations as well as marine and terrestrial ecosystems in coastal regions. WorldDEM elevation data can be used for flood modelling.
WorldDEM Supports Identification of Hazard Zones Threatened by Sea-Level Rise
Improvement of national authorities’ and in-country know-how in the field of reducing carbon emissions and monitoring forest areas supporting a sustainable forest.
TerraSAR-X Based Monitoring of Forest Degradation
Planted Eucalyptus forests are increasingly threatened by changing climate. There is a need for an early warning system capable of monitoring large forest areas. Radar and optical imagery was successfully used to track leaf loss patterns.
Early Drought and Disease Detection in Eucalyptus Clones at Scale
Managing trees, shrubs and plants alongside the railway is essential for any network company. With its partner FLAC Airbus developed a solution to prevent the danger of trees falling onto the tracks to keep the railways safe and operational.

Five years ago, SPOT 6 entered orbit
SPOT 6 was the first satellite constellation entirely designed, financed, built and operated by a private company to enter the Earth observation market. This Airbus initiative is now repeated with the investment in the Pléiades NEO Constellation.
Innovation Benefiting Mapping and the Environment
The Sargasse, a toxic seaweed, is invading and polluting Martinique beaches, impacting both the environment and local economic activity. SPOT 6/7 supported the detection and observation of this curse fed by climate change and oceans heating up.
