Land Change Analysis
A Powerful Tool for Understanding Changes to the Land
Landscapes are being changed by industrial activities. Our change analyses can detect, measure, and predict these impacts and our disturbance maps can visually depict them.
Communicate the changes you see on land
We help you convey, and show, the combined impacts resulting from past and present development in an area.
A visual aid for discussions
Easily show, and talk about, cumulative effects, changes to habitat, and impacts to traditional resources.
Evidence based, accurate & defensible
We use real satellite photographs to measure changes to the land.

“The authors use different resolution imagery to quantify the rate of disturbance in the boreal forests of Alberta. While the analyses are limited to Alberta, their findings (in particular, that fine resolution imagery reveals much faster rates of disturbance) have implications for tracking forest loss globally” – Research Reviewer 2 – Peer reviewed comments from Global Change Biology
