Teams working on Non-Technical Survey have developed a series of geospatial tools, services and guidelines based on satellite remote sensing, aerial photography (from fixed-wing aircrafts, helicopters and multirotor Unmanned Aircraft Systems) and GIS applications. They have been developed in accordance with user requirements thanks to actual case studies and they are applicable to a wide range of contexts.
They include: - an information management system with a database and a customized GIS interface for supporting desk assessment and data collection in the field; - services and guidelines for acquiring and pre-processing imagery, extracting features of interest (indirect evidence of the presence or absence of landmines and UXOs, UXOs on the ground surface, land-cover/land-use classes of interest etc.) and reconstructing the historical conflict landscape; - services for carrying out hyperspectral aerial surveys; - services for carrying out aerial surveys for supporting rapid reaction after the accidental explosion of an ammunition depot; - an operational system for the analytical assessment of SHAs, aerial data acquisition and data fusion for supporting decision-making on SHA status and re-delineation.
The video gives an overview of these geospatial tools, services and guidelines to the Mine Action community. It ends with a presentation of the on-line catalogue that was designed to help Mine Action stakeholders make an informed choice of these products for their applications.
