The Red Sea Development Company (TRSDC), the developer behind the world’s most ambitious regenerative tourism project, has partnered with The King Abdulaziz City for Science and Technology (KACST) to provide high resolution satellite data of key locations at The Red Sea Project.

The satellite imagery improves TRSDC’s ability to monitor The Red Sea Project, which covers around 28,000km2, allowing it to track construction progress while at the same time closely monitoring the environment for any unexpected changes, in order to respond appropriately if needed.

“Given our ambition is to enhance the environment, gaining reliable, detailed and timely visual insights is crucial to understanding how our development progress is affecting the precious habitats at the destination,” said John Pagano, CEO of TRSDC. “Through this partnership with KACST we are able to monitor key assets, both built and natural, during the construction phase which will significantly support our efforts to deliver a regenerative approach to tourism development.

KACST will use the National Center of Remote Technology (NCRST) to capture high-resolution data of The Red Sea Project’s development sites every month. The imagery will be color-balanced, georeferenced, orthorectified, with (NCRST) using satellites GeoEye-1, Worldview and Pleiades to capture images.
