With the threat of natural disasters growing, WEO is able to utilise the latest satellite data and machine learning techniques to help prepare municipalities and businesses to face the challenge. We offer solutions from mapping the wildfire risk posed by overgrown vegetation near assets to mapping flood events and land surface temperature monitoring.
Vegetation Risk Mapping
As wildfires approach from wilderness areas towards towns, recent examples in Greece and Portugal show that dozens of lives and hundreds of properties can be lost in a matter of hours. The speed of these events mean that preparation is key.
Good preparation can be the difference between a home being saved or destroyed. However, for municipalities and large landowners, it can be difficult to ensure that adequate vegetation clearing has taken place.
Therefore, WEO can provide monthly maps to help identify areas at greatest risk from overgrown vegetation, helping pioritise interventions in the lead up to the fire season.

Fuel Moisture Content and Potential Surface Temperature
Flood Extent Mapping
Recent flooding in Germany and Belgium has shown the destructive power of floods - and the threat will only grow with climate change.
WEO uses satellite imagery and advanced deep learning techniques to map flood extent to better understand and prepare for future events.
Preparing for more heatwaves
Land surface temperature monitoring is used by authorities to determine communities and areas most at risk during heatwaves. This is a vital part of climate change adaptation planning.
WEO utilises satellite imagery to produce high resolution land surface temperature maps to meet client needs.
