Satellite Services

Critchlow Geospatial believes that satellite-based foundational imagery and access to advanced image analysis capability can deliver significant business enhancements to most New Zealand business and government sectors to support social, environmental and sustainability needs.

Satellite imagery is a key tool that enables people with an interest in our natural and built environments to visualise and monitor change to provide evidence that supports decision-making. Satellite imagery and its derived products significantly expand contextual information and provides valuable information for both operational and policy needs.

How satellite services can benefit you 

Many sectors are no longer able to rely heavily on aerial photography and its associated technologies. The context and mapping made possible from aerial photography (such as a “farm map”) have been overtaken by more sophisticated management systems that are increasingly being used to provide critical context for decision-making. Specific monitoring and tracking applications are now mainstream, and business needs have now expanded beyond the reach of aerial photography.

Satellite imagery, on the other hand, can meet the needs of government and business by increasing the scope of existing data, including current and historic data, that is useful to solve complex business problems.

Satellite imagery enables people to visualise and monitor change, providing valuable information to support operational and policy needs. Multi- and super-spectral capabilities allow you to see through clouds and smoke, as well as easily distinguish between materials on the Earth’s surface.
