Mastery of remote sensing at the service of the environment
Satellite technologies have matured and are benefiting from the synergy with IT evolution. The term “remote sensing” refers to the ability to acquire images of the ground from a height of more than 100 km, with a precision of the order of one meter. This technique makes it possible to follow from day to day periodic phenomena such as the evolution of the coastline, the levels of a river, urban development, pollution …
BSA is the Channel Partner for the West Africa sub-region of Spot Image, the world leader in satellite imagery. The accuracy of images is staggered in ranges from infra-metric to 20m color particularly suitable for large areas. The archives existing since 1995 allow studies of evolution in addition to dynamic monitoring.
Interpretive periodic mapping
BSA’s services consist in mounting the equipment (antennas, receiving station, terminals, etc.), setting up image processing and mapping computers, training operational staff and monitoring. The client has, within a short time, an interpretative mapping system on all areas monitored to meet the information needs of leaders and react instantly to crises.
Geographic Information Systems
The management and monitoring of natural areas and the safeguarding of areas of biological, ecological or landscape interest, whether near urbanized areas or not, is a major problem faced by the authorities responsible for urban planning and protection. of the environment.
Thanks to the GIS environment, we use the information contained in the SPOT images, in the geographic databases as well as in the local technical databases which will make it possible to visualize in a global way the study area, to facilitate the setting up of management measures for natural areas of ecological interest, and to provide the necessary information for the development of awareness of the protection and development of these areas.
