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.
Defined by the United Nations as part of its 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, SDGs include No Poverty, Zero Hunger, Affordable and Clean Energy and Climate Action for example. By providing the most current countrywide data available the 4EI Country Intelligence suite can paint a picture of countries economic situation for investment potential, identify where hazards might affect an existing or proposed asset and give an insight into potential supply chain risks.
