Habitat Mapping

We have a wide level of expertise in habitat mapping.

We have extensive experience of using aerial and satellite imagery to create maps in a variety of locations and environments – previous projects have been as diverse and varied as the Norfolk Broads to the deserts of Saudi Arabia!

We can create habitat maps to show the geographic distribution of different habitats within a particular area using aerial or satellite imagery and complex GIS models (including machine learning and Artificial Intelligence) to interpret and extract information from images. This can save time compared to traditional survey techniques and lets us undertake work in areas that may normally prove difficult.

These techniques can provide baseline mapping  as well as provide regular and ongoing monitoring.   Increasingly we are using our own UAVs (drones) for these surveys to get higher quality imagery for more accurate habitat mapping on sites.  You can read more here
