Presenting the latest eBook from leading geospatial technology pioneers RSS-Hydro, which explores the company’s groundbreaking research and development activities that are helping to forge a more sustainable future for our planet.
The impacts of climate change have perpetuated devastating effects around the world, with rising global temperatures increasing the frequency and intensity of natural disasters, ranging from droughts and wildfires to ravaging floods. With the threat of disasters exacerbating significantly in recent years, innovating geospatial technologies that enable experts to manage impacts will be crucial for safeguarding life and infrastructure.
Flood-based disasters have become increasingly frequent and destructive, causing more deaths and around $90bn in damages in 2021 alone – making flooding the highest natural disaster in terms of insured and uninsured losses worldwide. Excessive flooding incurred by climate change not only poses significant threats to life but can displace hundreds of thousands of people, demolishing their homes, ruining livelihoods, and harming natural ecosystems.
The most effective method to reduce the impacts of water-based disasters on the global economy, regional ecosystems, and local communities is to develop advanced geospatial technology solutions to combat floods at a global scale. Luxembourg-based RSS-Hydro is leading these efforts. Their latest eBook delves into how the company is innovating a plethora of geospatial technologies, including remote sensing, flood modelling, Earth Observation (EO) technology, topography, machine learning, satellites, drones, and much more.
The company’s focus is centred around its three business pillars, which include research, development of science-driven products, and expert scientific consulting, with the company hosting a plethora of internationally-recognised scientists, geoscience technicians, and trained drone pilots. RSS-Hydro has included the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in its mission and business activities for developing sustainable technological solutions for society and the planet’s ecosystem under a changing climate and for responding sustainably to extreme weather events.
As a result of the high demand from industry sectors as well as the humanitarian and aid development community to offer more innovation in the EO application market, RSS-Hydro focuses resources and R&D projects to respond to this market gap effectively. The company is constantly committed to better serving science to everyone and engaging end-users from a variety of different sectors by assisting them in developing better products for their needs or using new and existing services in a way that produces better actionable information.Go to this partner's profile page to learn more about them
