Unveiling the GTIF Project

The workshop will delve into the details of the ESA GTIF project. You’ll gain insights into how EO data is leveraged to create actionable information, empowering various stakeholders to:

  • Decision-makers: Assess policy effectiveness, monitor progress towards goals, and make data-driven choices for a sustainable future.
  • Industry: Develop innovative solutions for the Green Economy, leveraging space technologies and collaborating within the GTIF ecosystem.
  • Citizens: Engage with the Green Transition by understanding the challenges and solutions through interactive tools and compelling scientific narratives.




The Power of Earth Observation for Sustainability

The global climate crisis demands immediate action. Transitioning societies and economies towards carbon neutrality requires a multi-faceted approach encompassing policy, innovation, and a sustainable relationship with our planet’s resources.

The ESA GTIF project tackles this challenge head-on by harnessing the power of Earth Observation (EO) data.

This innovative project focuses on the UK, Ireland, and France. Compass Informatics will be focusing on five key areas crucial for this Green Transition:

  • Energy Transition: Optimising solar power siting through advanced geospatial analysis to identify areas with the highest potential for solar energy generation.
  • Mobility Transition: Mapping PM2.5 concentrations to understand air quality and inform policies that promote sustainable transportation options, reducing emissions.
  • Carbon Accounting: Tracking fugitive methane emissions with high accuracy using remote sensing and geospatial data analysis for better management and mitigation strategies.
  • Food Systems: Monitoring droughts in food-growing areas using real-time data and geospatial tools to enable early intervention and improve food security.
  • Sustainable Cities: Mapping heat loss and urban heat island effects to identify areas needing energy efficiency improvements and develop strategies for cooler, more sustainable cities.

Join the Conversation & Shape the Green Transition
