The innovative RSS-Hydro showcases its newest geospatial technologies and discusses its mission to build on pioneering new remote sensing technologies.
There is a clear and growing demand from several sectors (public, private, non-governmental, and humanitarian) to better respond and prepare for floods and mitigate their impacts using geospatial technologies.
RSS-Hydro’s latest eBook discusses the vast range of technologies used by the company to deliver cutting-edge research on the most efficient and effective ways of monitoring floods on a global scale. The company’s CEO Dr Guy Schumann discusses:
- The use of drones in monitoring flood risks
- Simulating water risks
- RSS-Hydro’s PhD and postdoctoral training
- Cloud-based data solutions
