Earth Observation Services and Tools for Development: Examples from Indonesia
SHARE THIS PAGE
Featuring richly detailed satellite images of Indonesia, this report shows how precise Earth Observation (EO) tools can help planners shaping infrastructure, agriculture, and coastal management, as well as climate adaptation and disaster resilience.
Partnering with the European Space Agency (ESA), the Asian Development Bank (ADB) is promoting EO technologies that can guide members by providing geospatial maps of changes affecting land, buildings, and water bodies—which include vital information that is not available from the ground. Through Indonesian case studies, the publication explains how users can benefit from readily available access to large volumes of processed, rigorously analysed satellite data.
