How Satellite Imagery Can Save Lives and Help Fight Crime
How can a background in mapping cause you to end up tracking illegal gold miners, and using drones to assist in humanitarian crises?
Professor Richard Teeuw is a geomorphologist and remote sensing scientist at the University of Portsmouth. In this episode of Life Solved he explains how his work in geoinformatics and disaster risk reduction has led him to work on tackling challenges here on earth.
Thanks to revolutionary modern technology, Richard’s helping more and more organisations embrace mapping and imagery for good. And it’s not just satellite mapping either. His work with uncrewed aircraft systems or drones is helping rescue teams and communities work safely and affordably to save lives in the face of disaster.
