From power lines to railways, encroaching vegetation can cause downtime, damage, and even major catastrophes. Traditionally vegetation along linear infrastructure was managed by proactive vegetation removal and infrequent, yet resource-intensive, monitoring from helicopters or drones.
But the advent of higher-resolution satellite imagery, more frequent revisit, and broader coverage has enabled satellite-based analysis to emerge as an additional option for vegetation management.
Hear from industry experts and see technical walkthroughs into how satellite-based analysis can augment existing drone or helicopter-based insights, drastically reducing costs for the end user, and even acting as an early warning system for vegetation encroachment.
