Overview

You may have heard of InSAR and Earth observation; you may know they are useful for site monitoring, but you have no idea where to begin. The CIRIA guide will help you understand what these are and how to use them wisely, using case studies to illustrate a variety of applications. The guidance is an essential introduction to both Earth Observation and InSAR techniques, for anyone working in infrastructure.

This talk will cover the new CIRIA guidance, “InSAR and Earth Observation Techniques for infrastructure” and will be useful and interesting to anyone with an interest in remote sensing/using satellite data to monitor infrastructure and assets. Also, at this event, some of the latest developments in geohazard assessment using earth observation and Artificial Intelligence will be presented. The use of satellite derived information combined with geotechnical knowledge enable susceptibility assessments to geohazards, regularly updated, incorporating climate change impacts on infrastructure assets.

GEOFEM

Geofem’s strength lies above all in its people and this is reflected in our values. We have the expertise and experience ideally balanced in the fields of civil engineering, satellite remote sensing and GIS to deliver informed and accessible information to infrastructure, mining, energy and insurance stakeholders worldwide. Yet, we are still small enough to be flexible and responsive to customer needs.
