4 Earth Intelligence launches countrywide satellite intelligence data
Earth observation company 4 Earth Intelligence (4EI) has launched a suite of data layers providing an insight into a country’s wealth, demographics and transportation links. Derived from satellite imagery and other reputable resources, including the World Bank, Open Street Map, census records and historical archives, the Country Intelligence data suite has been created to support economic analysis, policy making and SMART Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) reporting.
The 4EI Country Intelligence suite includes six distinct layers that are provided as a mixture of point, line and polygon features ready for use in desktop mapping software and Geographical Information Systems (GIS). The layers; Demographics, Land Cover, Points of Interest, Significant Events, Transport and Wealth Index, have all been created using satellite imagery in combination with other geospatial and archival resources. The data is already available, off the shelf, for a number of countries across the Middle East and Africa and other areas can be produced on request.
