Booming population growth and a shortage of planned affordable housing are forcing millions of people into unauthorized dwellings. Rapid urbanisation and overpopulation disrupt the natural drainage patterns of the land, causing potentially dangerous waterlogging and flooding.
In sprawling and ever-changing cities, there’s no way for land administration professionals to be everywhere at once, making it difficult to monitor urban growth, detect unauthorised building work and decide when development activity begins to put people at risk. Urban managers need information which can help catch developers in breach of regulations, streamline planning processes and hold organisations to account.
Deimos Imaging satellite data is used to create accurate and cost-effective maps and 3D models to help you monitor flood risk, assess the stability of terrain and, crucially, identify where it’s safe to build – and where it isn’t.
