Earth Observation is often seen as “an answer looking for a question” or “a research technology that has been over sold to real world users”. This is unfortunate as Earth Observation offers information in a form and from a view point unique in environmental studies.
To maximise the benefits and minimise the risk of undertaking an activity which involves Earth Observation a feasibility study is essential. Specto Natura can provide unbiased information to improve the likelihood of success for the clients activity, whether or not Earth Observation is part of the solution. If Earth Observation can play a role, then its capabilities will be described realistically in the context of the clients activity, a thorough cost-benefit analysis completed and a forward look at the longer term sustainability of the activity will be provided.
