ADC now includes a new service: Daily updates of Albedo (reflectance / optical brightness) of the Earth's surface as received from Eumetsat satellites. Surface Albedo is measured as ratio of radiation reflected to the radiation incident on a surface. Albedo values shown on the ADC’s map interface are normalized between 0 and 1 over areas of 3 square kilometers.
Aratos Disaster Control (ADC) is offering its disaster prediction and monitoring capabilities in a global scale. We have created a specific use case scenario focusing on Chile, South America, implementing a specific subset of our satellite data layers mainly concerning wildfires.
Aratos Technologies, always thinking how to offer more and better tools and fulfill the clients’ needs, has developed a new tool that calculates two Land Cover Ratio indexes, the Farmlands to Forest areas ratio index and the Pastures to Forest areas ratio index.
