Abstract :

The effective exploitation of the increasing number of Earth Observation (EO) satellite images presently available requests the development of automatic processing procedures. The present paper is devoted to illustrate some ��?real-time��? monitoring applications of remote sensing satellite images. The applications have been developed at the Earth Observation Satellite Images Applications Lab (EOSIAL). The EOSIAL Lab of the University of Rome ��?La Sapienza��? is dedicated to develop innovative application through the use of optical remote sensing data (multi- and hyper-spectral) and SAR, integrated with GIS analysis. The areas of interest include: the monitoring of fires, monitoring of volcanic eruptions, the study of oil spills, monitoring of agricultural areas and precision agriculture, the development of applications related to safety issues (borders permeability, monitoring of refugee camps) and disaster management (dust storm, damage assessment, early warning, etc.). The automated procedures developed at the Lab involve the use of geostationary and polar orbit satellites sensor at low, medium and high spatial resolution. In particular, some applications concerning the early detection and monitoring of forest fires based on geostationary satellite (MSG/SEVIRI); the generation of fire hazard maps based on polar orbit satellites; the continuous monitoring of areas impacted by dust storm and the periodic update of agricultural area maps for developing countries.
