‘Invest in our Planet’
Earth Day is an annual celebration that honours the achievements of the environmental movement and raises awareness of the need to protect Earth’s natural resources for future generations.
As a geospatial company that provides Remote Sensing and GIS, it is important to share the relevance of Earth Observation (EO) in Earth Day.
Earth observation involves using satellites and other instruments to gather data about the Earth’s environment, including the atmosphere, oceans, and land. EO is important for Earth Day because it allows us to understand the state of the planet and the changes that are taking place.
By analysing EO data and technology, we can monitor changes in the Earth’s climate, track the health of ecosystems, and identify areas that are at risk of natural disasters. This information is essential for making informed decisions about how to protect the planet and ensure the sustainability of our natural resources.
