Description

 💎 Idea

We plan to use satellite data to analyse different parameters that affect the wildlife habitat in the arctic region. Using this we quantify the vulnerability index for different habitat regions which can be further used for planning conservation programs.


🚀 EU space technologies

We use a variety of satellite data such as Sentinel 1, Sentinel 2, MODIS, and TERRA to derive habitat suitability parameters like snow cover, ice thickness, air temperature, area, forest cover and human population. This satellite data is especially useful as it is very challenging to collect field data from the Arctic region.


❄️ Connecting the Arctic

Our solution addresses the challenge on 'Caring for our wildlife' in Arctic. Climate Change has imposed a great risk to the wildlife globally, especially in the Arctic region. With our solution we try to create a composite indicator that highlights the vulnerability of the wildlife habitat so that informed conservation and mitigation measures can be taken.
