What is Earth Observation (EO)?

The gathering of information about the Earth’s physical, chemical, and biological systems. Remote-sensing technologies/instruments (what GlobalTrust specialises in) and ground-based techniques are used to acquire observations of the Earth’s surface and atmosphere. 

Where does your data come from?

GlobalTrust uses multiple sources of data including drones, ground-based surveys or even insights from social media. Our main source of data is from satellites, and we will always identify and use the most relevant sources of satellite imagery (commercial or openly available) to use within our products and services.  

Why use satellite imagery?

Satellites offer more consistency and richness of data, have access to remote locations, and can provide imagery for much larger areas than the alternatives. Satellites offer a cost-effective and more frequent alternative to data gathered on the ground. 

What kinds of analytics do you use?

This is dependent on many factors, including location, image provider, number of images, availability of open-source data, level of resolution, time frame of monitoring, coverage extent, satellite orbital path limits, and more. 

Are there limitations to geographical zones?

Yes, there are limitations to geographical zones for satellite data analytics, such as cloud cover, atmospheric interference, and resolution constraints, but they can be overcome with the latest advances in sensor technology, such as higher-resolution imaging and enhanced spectral capabilities, that enhance the satellite’s ability to capture data through clouds and vegetation cover. One exception is over conflict zones which, for obvious reasons, can be difficult or impossible to obtain imagery for We make sure to find the appropriate images for your project. By offering options spanning from low to high resolution and employing both radar and optical sensors, we ensure that our clients receive the most relevant and accurate information for their decision-making processes. 

How do satellite data analytics benefit businesses and organisations?

Satellite data analytics offer numerous benefits, including real-time monitoring, cost-effectiveness, global coverage, and the ability to obtain insights in remote or inaccessible areas. By utilising satellite data analytics, businesses and organisations can improve operational efficiency, optimise resource management, mitigate risks, and gain competitive advantages.
