New Space pioneer Earth-i announced that it has completed the third annual update of the satellite map of the state of Queensland. The map covers the whole of Queensland’s 1.9 million km2 and was created by Earth-i for the Department of Natural Resources, Mines and Energy (DNRME).The first map was produced in 2016 with Earth-i reappointed for updates in both 2017 and 2018. Around 6,000 very high-resolution images from the DMC3 Constellation were used for the 2018 update of the map with multiple re-visits to tropical areas with heavy cloud cover. These images are used by a variety of Government departments, local agencies and natural resource management groups to manage and monitor Queensland’s resources and improve policy development, investment and planning decisions.The map also helps to monitor environmental changes, and helps with the planning of long-term land development strategies.
