|ScanEx Research & Development Center (Russia) and French Spot Image (France) have signed an agreement, entitling ScanEx with exclusive rights starting late July 2010 to distribute SPOT 4 satellite data over the territory of Russia and Belarus. Granting of exclusive rights to ScanEx to operate with SPOT 4 data expands the possibilities of operating with satellite data and ensures a high degree of their availability in Russia.|
SPOT 4 data is used to resolve tasks of plotting and updating maps at scales of 1:100 000, 1:200 000, emergencies monitoring and damage assessment, agricultural and forestry monitoring, etc. In 2010 only SPOT 4 data were used for floods monitoring on Russian rivers, for harp seals whelping areas detection on the White Sea in order to prepare recommendations for the ship captains to bypass the animal habitats. Most widely SPOT 4 data has been applied this summer during the operational fire situation monitoring campaigne in Russia. Detailed images enabled to monitor the consequences of fires and to map the burnt areas.
