THE COMPANY SIRS is a specialist in the production of geographic data from satellite or aerial images
From 2009 until 2011, SIRS has processed the Urban Atlas, a land cover for more than 300 of the largest cities in Europe.
Since 2013, SIRS has been upadting the Urban Atlas and processing a land cover for other cities. In the end, 705 LUZ will benefit land cover.
Since 2012 SIRS, in partnership with GAF, has been processing 2 500 000 km², in order to extract imperviousness and forest. Both are references layers to GEOLAND 2 program.
