Resilient Cities

Satellite Analytics to Drive the Green City Revolution

Challenges

  • Cities everywhere are striving towards the green revolution that is needed to adapt to climate change and make our cities the healthy livable places we want to be. 

  • But to achieve this step change in city greening, new datasets are needed to help city planners, arborists and developers highlight problem areas, identify where policies are working and monitor progress towards targets.

  • Unfortunately,  remote sensing from aerial imagery or drones is too expensive to be regularly updated and much satellite imagery is too low in resolution

Our Solutions

Identify urban heat islands through high resolution surface temperature monitoring.

Track surface sealing to encourage biodiversity and reduce rainfall runoff that increases flood risk. 

Measure the growth and health of trees to help grow urban forests. 

Identify urban heat islands through high resolution surface temperature monitoring. 

What We Offer

Trustworthy

WEO have built long-term relationships with our clients because we deliver in a timely fashion and are upfront about what our data can be used for

Actionable Insights

Identify sick trees before its too late. Pinpoint and rectify urban heat islands. Analysis that makes building resilient cities easier.

Affordable

Our satellite-driven analytics are a fraction of the cost of laser scanning, drones or aerial surveillance

Regular Updates

WEO use frequently updated satellite data to provide updated analytics to your desktop on a seasonal or annual basis

High Resolution

Our machine learning techniques take lower resolution satellite imagery and extract high resolution insights

Widespread Coverage

The base of our maps is globally-available satellite data. Combined with our locally-trained algorithms, we can provide accurate data across cities or countries.

Case Studies

Sealed Surface Mapping

WEO was engaged to analyse surface sealing for a major Belgian city. Our 1m resolution maps are used to understand better how to slow sealing and the impact of new surfaces such as artificial turf and permeable pavements.

Urban Heat Mapping

Climate change is increasing urban heat island effects caused by pavements and buildings absorbing and retaining heat. WEO monitors day and night temperatures for a Luxembourg city to better understand and combat the problem.
