Earth observation as a service

Forests

The application of Earth Observation (EO) for forest monitoring can support decision making in reversing deforestation/ degradation. EO data has the capacity to support forest monitoring iin Africa. The satellites can give a more complete picture of forests located in geographically inaccessible locations. Having more comprehensive forest information means countries can better implement national policies and international Conventions to reduce deforestation and degradation.

Land

We provide geographical information on land cover and its changes, land use, vegetation state, water cycle and Earth’s surface energy variables to a broad range of users in Africa  in the field of environmental terrestrial applications.

We support applications in a variety of domains such as spatial and urban planning, forest management, water management, agriculture and food security, nature conservation and restoration, rural development, ecosystem accounting and mitigation/adaptation to climate change.

LEARN MORE

Marine

We provide regular and systematic reference information on the physical and biogeochemical state, variability and dynamics of the ocean and marine ecosystems for the Africa ocean and the seas.

The observations and forecasts produced by the service support all marine applications, including:

Marine safety;
Marine resources;
Coastal and marine environment;
Weather, seasonal forecasting and climate.

The service also contributes to the protection and the sustainable management of living marine resources in particular for aquaculture, sustainable fisheries management or regional fishery organisations decision-making process.

Physical and marine biogeochemical components are useful for water quality monitoring and pollution control. Sea level rise is a key indicator of climate change and helps to assess coastal erosion. Sea surface temperature elevation has direct consequences on marine ecosystems and the occurence of tropical cyclones. As a result, the service supports a wide range of coastal and marine environment applications.

Climate Change

Helping the agriculture community adapt to a changing climate

Food security is a global concern, and the effect of climate on agriculture cannot be isolated to a single country or continent.

We provide authoritative information about the past, present and future climate, as well as tools to enable climate change mitigation and adaptation strategies by policy makers and businesses. 

Agriculture and forestry will be affected by climate change. Plant growth will be impacted and, in turn, agriculture and food production. We provide data to help the agri-forestry sector predict how these changes will affect crop yield, and ultimately return on investment.
The Agriculture sector will have to cope with the effects of climate change, whilst providing food for a growing population. Long-term changes in precipitation, temperature and soil moisture will impact plant growth, as well as the prevalence and activity of crop pests. As a result, yields of maize and wheat are predicted to decline in parts of southern Europe over the coming decades.

Precision Agriculture
World agriculture is big business, but its significance extends far beyond the economy. Food security for a rapidly increasing population is critical, and the use of precision agriculture has transformed farming. But much as agriculture is now big business, small farmers and farms, often in developing countries, are just as critical to world food markets and to the health of their local economies.

In agriculture, Earth Observation imagery and data analytics have already revolutionised food production and supply chain management with the development of precision farming. Earth-i offers precision agriculture companies access to timely and detailed geospatial information that can assist agricultural guidance systems to manage crop production and maximise yields in large-scale farming enterprises or provide critical decision-support to small-holder farms in developing countries.

Earth-i delivers geospatial intelligence to farmers, governments and agri-companies with a level of detail and actionable insight, over wide areas and with high frequency revisits. This enables effective decision-support and farm-based technologies that increase crop yields, crop health and farm productivity. When integrated with other data sources, such as predictive models for weather and pests, geospatial analytics and intelligence are combatting the impact of climate change and working towards more sustainable global food supply.

Sample Applications:
• Mapping agricultural land and crop classification Vegetation and crop health monitoring
• Terrain feature identification and change monitoring
• Site-specific crop yield management programmes
• Climate change mitigation

Urban Management & Smart Cities

By 2050 two-thirds of the world’s population will live in urban areas, with significant concentrations of people in 50 or more mega-cities around the planet. But many of the fastest growing cities of the world are currently relatively small urban settlements. The rapid pace of change poses challenges to urban planners in ensuring efficient city infrastructure management, and the need for accurate information and insights requires a timely flow of actionable data from land use satellites.

Traditional mapping methods can struggle to keep up with such rapid changes, preventing successful sustainable ‘smart city’ development. Remote sensing technology offers new answers to old problems of how to manage sustainable urban development and meet the ever-increasing demand from city-based populations. Such developments, in any part of the world, can now be most effectively and affordably monitored using a new generation of smart city satellite to support urban zoning, population density mapping and planning the cities of the future.

For today’s urban planners land use satellite imagery is an invaluable source of information supporting planning decisions for local and national government and related services, whether it is housing provision, traffic management, city infrastructure management or law enforcement.

– Zoning and urban planning
– 3D modelling including digital city creation
– City infrastructure modelling
– Carbon footprint, pollution and traffic analysis
– Security reviews and law enforcement planning

GLOBAL EMISSION IN NUMBERS

SCALING UP ACTION

Aiming for net zero emissions

Fossil fuels account for one third while Agriculture account for two third. Our services focus on these markets. The CO2 Recycling Process is a separate Add-On Process to the existing Power Station Processes. Its Thermodynamic Energy requirements are miniscule compared with existing Power Station Costs. Therefore the Combined Processes save Current Costs of Electricity Production resulting in:
Lower Energy Costs
Clean Electricity and Energy
Dramatically reduced Fossil Fuel Use
Most Probably less Climate Change
No Pollution from CO2 Emissions, Sulphur & Nitrous Emissions
New industries

What Others Say

Methane emissions refer to the portions of methane that are released into the atmosphere. Methane is the principal component of natural gas.It is useful in many ways, but it can also be harmful to the environment.

Sources of methane production include wetlands (22%); gas and coal mining or natural gas (19%); enteric fermentation in ruminants (16%); rice cultivation (12%); biomass burning (8%); land fills (6%); and animal waste (5%).

Anna Johnson
CEO @ COOLAPP

The global warming potential of methane is 23 times that of CO2 but its atmospheric lifetime is only 12 years, compared with 100 to 200 years for CO2. methane has a larger effect, the duration of the effect is much shorter

Eric Black
COO @ COOLAPP

If the soil health and nitrogen status are improved by cover crops and organic fertilisers, such as manure, rather than chemical fertiliser, less nitrous oxide will be released. On-farm emissions can also be reduced by using environmentally friendly energy sources such as solar or wind

CFO @ COOLAPP

Latest News

As cattle in South Africa are fattened in feedlots for about 110 days, they produce GHG for only 110 days before being slaughtered.

“For cattle on rangeland or pasture, it requires more than 200 days to finish to the same carcass classification because of the lower-quality feed compared to a feedlot diet
