The environment is constantly changing due to human influences, natural ecological processes and climate change. Geospatial technology has become integral in the monitoring environmental and climatic changes.
Natural habitat loss and degraded land has been the catalyst for the recent awareness in environmental sciences. Environmental impact studies and assessments have relied heavily on remote sensing and geographic information systems for monitoring and evaluating environmental situations. The use of satellite remote sensing allows us to address challenges like climate change, water scarcity, crop diseases, soil erosion, waterlogging, mapping crops and measuring soil salinity. While advanced GIS software, 3D modelling and spatial analysis can assist environmental users in making up to date, informed decisions regarding our planets most valuable resources.
