Monitoring of the Common Agricultural Policy, mapping crop types, mapping of linear and small landscape features, grass land monitoring… SIRS maps cropland identifying crop types and fallow land. This information is relevant to accompany agricultural policies.
Based on 30 years of close collaboration with forest managers, SIRS identifies, monitors and analyzes the evolution of forest cover around the world for national and international policies (UNFCCC REDD +, Zero deforestation, etc.). This is key information for the sustainable management of our natural heritage.
Whether drinkable, navigable or even used for energy supply, water is a vital resource for our communities. In the context of climate change, SIRS supports water managers in the creation and the management of hydrographic network datasets.
The world’s population is growing... and associated urban expansion is exponential. How to sustainably manage our urban footprint? How to preserve our soils? SIRS provides urban planners with precise maps and indicators for a controlled management of our urban development.
Humanitarian crises, floods, fires, volcanic eruptions, earthquakes, natural, industrial or extreme geopolitical events are numerous. SIRS delivers maps rapidly on impacted territories. The information delivered is precise, quality assured and standardized.
How to control the impact of human activities on the environment? The answer: knowledge and evaluation. Thanks to our multidisciplinary expertise (combination of field studies and Earth observations) SIRS contributes to our knowledge of natural environments and habitat monitoring.
