- Detect any changes larger than 500 m2
- Screen 100s of km2 quickly and at low costs
- Highlight deforestation after wildfires or illegal cutting
- Assess impacts of earthquakes and flooding
The GeoService Damage Assessment from Earthcube detects all changes which are larger than 500 m2. The change may be due to a damage an event like a storm, earthquake, fire, hail or flooding has caused.
For this and many other damage assessment tasks this GeoService highlights within your selected area of interest all affected objects. The add-on options allow you to further categorize the type of the changes: You can choose between one or multiple maps, which delineate the effect of the event on trees (deforestration), infrastructure, on agricultural fields or show the flood extent.
Insurance companies, farmers, environmental consultants and actually everyone interested to assess the damage after an event can use this service and integrate the results in his workflows. Geospatial experts easily embed the digital maps into their GIS analysis. If one or more of the add-on options are chosen, the individual maps on forest or infrastructure change are represented as separate layers within the resulting shape file. The change detection report in PDF format is designed to be part of any official documentation.
Configure and order
- Area of interest (AOI): Please define your area of interest either by drawing or uploading a file.
- Basic package: This option is selected as default, as you will get in any case a change detection for your AOI.
- Minimum object size to detect: Please select the minimum size of objects, you want to have detected. You can select between two options representing e.g. larger buildings (50m x 10m) or groups of buildings or industrial areas (200m x 100m).
- Delivery Package: You can select between a map of changes as shapefile, a change detection report or select both.
- Start date: Please provide the date of the event which may have caused the damage. We will use the data sets closest to the event before and after. We may use multiple data sets to cover your AOI at best.
- Remarks: Please insert any questions and comments here.
