Environment Systems is an environmental consultancy. We are trusted providers of environmental evidence and insight to governments and industry.
FLARE is a feasibility study that will seek to improve the efficiency of loss adjustment and claims management in forestry insurance. The project will establish the technical practicality as well as the economic and operational viability for using space and airborne data assets, within an integrated system.
We have won three SSGP(Space for Smarter Government) projects funded by the UK Space Agency. SSGP is a strategic, national, programme established and led by the UK Space Agency in 2014 and delivered in collaboration with the Satellite Applications Catapult to drive the uptake and use of space products, data and services across government departments.
Environment Systems was commissioned by Avon Wildlife Trust and Bristol City Council to produce a number of environmental opportunities maps which cover the greater Bristol area to coincide with Bristol being the European Green Capital in 2015. The maps were produced from over 200 different datasets, including satellite and aerial imagery, soil and habitat data.
We have now embarked on a third phase of work for DEFRA and JNCC. This new phase will establish the range of uses of EO for informing policy and practical land management decision making. Further technical development will be focused on upland areas. We will also be taking on a co-ordination and information exchange role.
We are now two years into this 4 year FP7 ‘citizen science’ project. The project sets out to develop a software infrastructure that will make it easier for citizens using mobile devices to collect environmental data suitable for use in policy and decision making. The project is built around UNESCO’s Worldwide Network of Biosphere Reserves (WNBR).
Environment Systems is a preferred supplier of ecological mapping for coastal monitoring frameworks in England and is currently working on the North West framework for Sefton Council. The extent of the area to be mapped runs from the Solway Firth to the River Dee.
Environment Systems will be presenting at two conferences focused on the marine environment in the autumn.
