Using two SENTINEL-1A radar images acquired on March 27 and April 20, 2016, and differential interferometry (DInSAR), the Effigis Earth Observation team measured the ground displacement that took place following this earthquake.
High-resolution satellite images acquired in urgent mode can be used to plan and manage interventions during a natural disaster (forest fire, earthquake, flood).
Using Landsat 7 and 8 satellite images, we see the extent of the natural disaster that has been raging since May 1, 2016 at Fort McMurray (Alberta).
Landsat-7 and 8 satellite images allow to see the extent of this natural disaster.
His presentation is entitled ''Shielding Integrity Testing for Home Certification Program'' and will be held at the Mississauga Convention Center.
By obtaining this project, Effigis consolidates its position as the major pole inspection service supplier in Quebec and one of the main ones in Canada.
Using radar interferometry, a technique used to target displacements to the nearest centimetre, Effigis’ Earth Observation Team tried to determine whether the impact of the earthquake could be measured.
On May 23, 2015, the highest volcano in the Galapagos Islands, Wolf Volcano, erupted for the first time in 33 years. Using satellite imagery and radar interferometry, our team tried to determine whether the soil had moved specifically due to this eruption.
