Due to the rapid urbanisation in recent times, the land authority of the Turkish Government – the General Directorate of Land Registry and Cadastre (GDLRC) – has an increasing workload of updating cadastral data.

Disaster Management

Space-programme research and development over the past five decades has culminated today in the broad practical application of advanced earth observation (EO) technologies. Satellite technologies are now reaching a level at which they can contribute significantly to relief efforts after natural disaster. It has often been proved over recent years that the rapid provision of high-quality radar and optical satellite imagery enables quick and detailed evaluation of disaster areas. The earthquake which hit Sichuan Province in China on 12th May was so strong that office buildings in Beijing (1,500km away) and Shanghai (1,700km) swayed; it left about five million people...

Integrated Coastal Zone Management

CoastWatch: A Geo-information Service for Europe
An integrated approach towards coastal zone management requires relevant, credible and reliable (geo-)data. However, the legends of geo-information covering coastal zones vary so much between the various European countries that integrated use of the national databases is difficult.

The zones house a large part of the population of Europe and form a vital link for transport and trade. These coastal zones also contain some of the most valuable habitats and landscapes and are the favoured destination for... (read more)
