Detailed information on the extent an area is flooded is often needed for fast response actions and for damage estimation. Satellite remote sensing is often hampered by clouds, and resolution and timing is often not appropriate. Ground observations are limited by access conditions of flooded areas.
HiView’s Flying Sensors are available at any time after a flooding event. In combination with HiView’s appropriate software accurate maps of affected areas can be produced. Moreover the Flying Sensors are not hampered by clouds.
Typical examples of projects in the context of “near-real time high resolution flood monitoring” undertaken by HiView are:
