Rezatec is working with Scottish Water to help assess peatland integrity across remote parts of their catchments to help protect and improve the quality of their source water. High-resolution Earth Observation (EO) data has been calibrated with spatial land cover and peat depth data to provide an accurate picture of peatland structure and integrity. âThis not only helps to protect the environment but it will potentially reduce the cost of providing a clear fresh public water supply.â said Zoë Frogbrook, Technical lead for Catchment Management, Scottish Water. Rezatecâs landscape intelligence platform offers a cost-effective way of measuring peat extent and how intact it is over wide and potentially remote areas that are otherwise expensive to measure or inaccessible from the ground.
