Highlights of May 2022
Here’s a summary of our observations from last month. Besides amazing views of beautiful places on our planet, we could observe heavy rainfalls in Queensland, melting glaciers or explosive volcano activity.
Examples of the latest visible changes in satellite images
Satellite images allow you to monitor recent changes over the years. Above you can see the process of construction of the Chengdu Tianfu International Airport. Using our platform you can also choose certain locations and follow them in the future. For example, since mid-2021 U.S. defence officials have been claiming that China is considering whether to build a naval base in Equatorial Guinea and that all signs point to Bata. So this can be a great location to keep an eye on.
How to obtain visible changes in satellite images
When you compare the satellite images, recent changes are even more visible. Such as the increase in glacier melting or in flood risk. It’s way easier to see these changes using animated images.
Monitoring conflicts using satellite imagery
Satellite imagery enables us to follow the course of action and current situation in Ukraine. Intense fighting continues especially in the eastern and southern parts of the country. Russian forces now control more than two-thirds of the key eastern Ukrainian city of Sievierodonetsk.
