Exploring the use of satellite imagery to maintain the highest levels of Environment Agency flood incident response despite the impact of COVID 19.
We are very excited about this Spottitt led, 6-month project (Jul – Dec 2020), funded by a £45,000 grant from Innovate UK via their call for, ‘Business-led innovation in response to global COVID 19 disruption’. How can the EA maintain and improve it’s incident response when constrained by reduced staffing levels (staff sick at home or shielding), remote working and social distancing guidelines?
Could the use of satellite imagery and cloud computing to provide near real time flood analytics be a solution?
