SATELLITES FOR FUTURE CITIES

SATELLITES CAN…

SensorMeasureEarth Observation satellites can provide data on our atmosphere using wide range wavelengths which detect the different potential pollutants in the air.

connect servicesCommunication satellites provide continual connectivity for Emergency Services in remote locations when terrestrial and mobile connectivity is unavailable.

3d mapsThe data from Earth Observation satellites can produce Digital Terrain Models (DEMs) which can be used to create 3D maps, giving better visualisation and context to the end user.

TrafficThe data from Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) satellites can be used to identify road congestion and redirect drivers to avoid congested roads.

DriverlessDriverless cars (also known as autonomous vehicles), will soon be on our roads. Sensors on the cars use communication satellites, while data from GNSS satellites helps provide the optimum route for the cars.
Surface water availability, as well as quality, can be detected from satellites.Water
CitySatellite data can help plan the optimum city layout and Earth observation images can help identify changing developments within the cities.
Land useSatellites can help detect tree health by measuring the chemical composition from the foliage of individual trees.
