STACC is developing innovative satellite and MPS based system for monitoring urbanisation

STACC in cooperation with Tartu Observatory and our international partners is developing CUDA – a complex information system for monitoring urbanisation in global scale. CUDA uses Copernicus Sentinel satellite data for mapping infrastructure changes and anonymous mobile positioning data for mapping population and demographic processes. Information and statistics derived with CUDA is useful input for strategic planning for large municipalities, national governments, intergovernmental organisations, real estate and infrastructure services companies.
