Satellite images have a wide range of applications, including access to information related to the management of natural resources and climate protection and the identification of environmental factors affecting human health or mitigating epidemics. The images taken from Earth’s orbit allow us, among other, to observe how, with the development of epidemics, restrictions on movement in individual countries and the closure of entire cities and districts cause voids on the streets, and the stop of transport and work in production plants reduces air pollution.
Satellite imaging can be used in research projects and projects aimed at fighting the COVID-19 pandemic and its impact on the environment. For people, start-ups and companies planning such projects, CloudFerro has prepared a special offer for access to cloud resources and satellite images in a very high resolution.
