More on Spatial Analysis and Remote Sensing

Whether you need to survey land to monitor crop health or yields, identify tree species, assess vegetation cover, or map large sites to determine ground conditions and resource availability, our Remote Sensing and Geographical Information Systems (GIS) scientists can use cutting-edge UAV and sensor technology to supply all the imagery and analysis you need.

Fera scientists use Geographical Information Systems (GIS) and geographic analysis to visualise, analyse and interpret data in a spatial manner to help governments, policymakers and planners understand relationships, patterns and trends.
