Monitoring Mining Projects in Colombia with High-Cadence PlanetScope Imagery

On-Demand Webinar

Monitoring the conditions of mining operations in Colombia is essential to evaluate the associated environmental, legal, public-security and financial implications. Satellite imagery constitutes a data type that enables efficient assessments of mining projects.

Land degradation due to illegal mining operations is of particularly high concern in Colombia and the analysis of satellite images provides the opportunity to detect those actions in different spatial scales.

In this session, you'll learn Colombia is using high-cadence satellite imagery to monitor the progress of mining projects based on the interpretation, analysis and comparison of this multi-date data to support decision making process to manage mining projects, and the challenges and opportunities that stem from this use case.
