Digital Earth Africa establishes satellite office in Kenya to drive research and policy-making | Digital Watch Observatory

The move will enable harnessing earth observation data for food security, environmental conservation, and climate change mitigation.


Discover Landsat data available through Digital Earth Africa

Landsat data is accessible to all users, regardless of your level of technical competency. The new ARD can be used to map and mitigate a number of challenges, such as monitoring rangelands which will help to preserve this essential terrain and could provide a key input for wildlife conservation efforts.

Visit Digital Earth Africa Docs for more information on Landsat Surface Reflectance and Landsat Surface Temperature. Digital Earth Africa provides a free self-paced training course, making Earth observation data accessible to problem-solvers worldwide.


The role of low-code Earth observation tools in accelerating the sustainability transition

We've published a paper on the role of low-code Earth observation tools in the sustainability transition. It covers how different roles in a business like analysts and executives can benefit from this tech and how it can be applied to ESG, Nature Based Solutions and insurance and finance.

Hi Jeremy, 

With a quick search I've found the paper linked below. It looks like equipments such as Livox MID are sufficient for plot-level analyses, but not for individual trees. Also, it has performed worse in dense canopies and broadleaf forest, thus I believe we won't have a technology capable of doing what you aim for this amount of money (< $1000) in a few years from now.

I hope someone give us an alternative, though. :D

Hi Shani, great to hear you are enjoying the series!

We're happy to share slides if our speakers give permission, in this case however the speaker has elected not to because of some of the content in the slides.

Was there anything specific you had trouble viewing and wanted to look at in more detail?

No, just in general it's easier for me to absorb information when I can look at it at my own pace (like some things from the first lecture, trying to remember the different types of sensors and their strengths, etc). But no problem at all, I understand- I can always scroll through the video and also do other research online. Thanks for getting back to me!

Ok no problem! Let me know if you have trouble viewing one of the specific figures/diagrams clearly though and I can try reaching out to the speaker to see if they would be willing to provide a higher resolution version.
