Remote sensing solutions for water management

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 to provide detailed information on for example the Urban Heat Island effect.

WorldCover: worldwide land cover mapping

Discover more about WorldCover, the global land cover products at 10 m resolution for 2020 and 2021 based on Sentinel-1 and Sentinel-2 data.

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.


Automatic redevelopment sites monitoring using Sentinel data

Sentinel-1 and Sentinel-2 data for urban planning and land management.

TerraFlood use case

TerraFlood: mapping and monitoring floods using Sentinel-1 data

TerraFlood is a Virtual Machine application to provides spatially consistent flood observations independent of weather conditions.

FARSEER to monitor vector-borne diseases

Forecasting and monitoring vector-borne diseases with FARSEER

Discover more about FARSEER, an online tool which uses satellite data from MODIS, VIIRS, PROBA-V and Sentinel to forecast and monitor vector-borne diseases in order to prevent the next outbreak.

Californian wildfires monitoring with Sentinel-5P TROPOMI

Monitoring atmospheric gases during wildfires

Discover how we can monitor formaldehyde and carbon monoxide, emitted by the Australian and Californian wildfires, by using Sentinel-5P TROPOMI.

air pollution

Measuring Nitrogen Dioxide From Space

The TROPOMI satellite instrument on Sentinel-5P provides daily global pollution measurements. Combined with airborne measurements, we can detect and monitor anthropogenic emissions.
