Thanks to the large amount of earth observation data and advanced possibilities in processing and using this data, more and more remote sensing applications find their way to the general public. Also for monitoring water quality. At Rijkswaterstaat (the Ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management in The Netherlands) they are using remote sensing solutions for managing water surfaces and monitoring public health.
Urban Heat Island mapping with combined Sentinel-2 and Sentinel-3 observations
Discover a preview application which combines Sentinel-3-derived Land Surface Temperature (LST) and Sentinel-2 reflectance data to improve the nominal 1 km LST to 20 m in order toprovide detailed information on for example the Urban Heat Island effect.
Monitoring deformation of bridges using Sentinel-1
In the MOSCI project, IMDC and VITO looked into the feasibility of using InSAR technology to monitor deformation of large structures. This remote sensing technology uses freely available Sentinel-1 data which allows us to monitor e.g. hundreds of bridges at the same time.
