Estimating Volume Changes for Floodplain Harvesting in New South Wales, Australia

To preserve and protect precious water resources in New South Wales, Australia, members of the state’s Department of Planning and Environment must monitor water volume in dams and storage – and compare volume over time.

Using the Planet platform and its daily, high-resolution images, NSW’s remote-sensing team can estimate volume changes during the floodplain harvesting event and estimate water take during the flood event.
