ESA shows 30 years of deforestation in Amazon rainforest
Deforestation near the northwestern Brazilian city of Rio Branco has made its mark on the rainforest over the last 30 years. By comparing a Landsat-5 image from 1985 with a Copernicus Sentinel-2 image from 2016, we can see where vegetation has been cleared away for logging, farming, and other activities. Rainforests worldwide are being destroyed at an alarming rate. This is of great concern because they play an important role in global climate, and are home to a wide variety of plants, animals, and insects. More than a third of all species in the world live in the Amazon Rainforest. Unlike other forests, rainforests do not grow back when they are destroyed and, owing to their composition, their soils are not suitable for long-term agricultural use. With their unique view from space, Earth observation satellites have been instrumental in highlighting the vulnerability of the rainforests by documenting the scale of deforestation, particularly in remote areas. In these false-colour images, vegetation appears red to help us better distinguish between vegetated and non-vegetated areas.

Know all about the Sentinel Mission
ESA is developing a new family of missions called Sentinels specifically for the operational needs of the Copernicus programme. Each Sentinel mission is based on a constellation of two satellites to fulfil revisit and coverage requirements, providing robust datasets for Copernicus Services. These missions carry a range of technologies, such as radar and multi-spectral imaging instruments for land, ocean and atmospheric monitoring: ▪Sentinel-1 is a polar-orbiting, all-weather, day-and-night radar imaging mission for land and ocean services. Sentinel-1A was launched on 3 April 2014 and Sentinel-1B on 25 April 2016. Both were taken into orbit on a Soyuz rocket from Europe's Spaceport in French Guiana. ▪Sentinel-2 is a polar-orbiting, multispectral high-resolution imaging mission for land monitoring to provide, for example, imagery of vegetation, soil and water cover, inland waterways and coastal areas. Sentinel-2 can also deliver information for emergency services. Sentinel-2A was launched on 23 June 2015 and Sentinel-2B was launched on 7 March 2017. ▪Sentinel-3 is a multi-instrument mission to measure sea-surface topography, sea- and land-surface temperature, ocean colour and land colour with high-end accuracy and reliability. The mission will support ocean forecasting systems, as well as environmental and climate monitoring. Sentinel-3A was launched on 16 February 2016. ▪Sentinel-4 is a payload devoted to atmospheric monitoring that will be embarked upon a Meteosat Third Generation-Sounder (MTG-S) satellite in geostationary orbit. ▪Sentinel-5 is a payload that will monitor the atmosphere from polar orbit aboard a MetOp Second Generation satellite. ▪Sentinel-5 Precursor satellite mission is being developed to reduce data gaps between Envisat, in particular the Sciamachy instrument, and the launch of Sentinel-5. This mission will be dedicated to atmospheric monitoring. ▪Sentinel-5 carries a radar altimeter to measure global sea-surface height, primarily for operational oceanography and for climate studies. EU and ESA are already in talks to extend the Sentinel mission ▪Sentinel-7 is envisaged to be a constellation of satellites that monitors CO2. ▪Sentinel-8 could be a thermal infrared sensor for understanding drought etc. ▪Sentinel-9 is envisaged to be a polar mission to study thickness of ice surfaces and provide better weather imaging and communications at high latitudes.

India is Making Chip to use IRNSS on Mobile
NavIC receivers are available for some industries on payment basis NavIC signals are coming vertically from stationary reference NavIC will be much better than GPS There are two uses of the navigation system. Security, air travel and important installations which are not a price-conscious industry. For them the NavIC receivers are there. You pay some money and you will get good NavIC receivers …both L and S bands. These NavIC receivers are going to be installed in aircraft soon. It is slow, but things are moving. Another side of navigation business is by common people. you want to locate so many things and that is where it has to penetrate. Chips that are coming today in mobile phones are GPS enabled. Since our signals are coming vertically from stationary reference, so in crowded place and narrow lanes, our NavIC is going to work better than GPS. Chip is being built to use NavIC in mobile phones Blueprint of the indigenous chip will be available by year end Market penetration of NavIC will start slowly Once people see it benefits, it will be very popular If you use both L and S bands, our accuracy is more than 5 meters. This has a better potential than a 20-meter accuracy GPS which is actually supplemented by the GPRS information. But our NavIC can give you the accuracy GPRS and GPS combined. And that accuracy is not only for cities but every rural part of the country. The market will look for a chip and market is so price sensitive that if somebody invests in it then its a different investment because its different from mobile assembling and navigation chip development company is not there. So we thought we will develop our own chip and I am glad to share with you that we have already built a chip with 32channel IRNS receiver. This chip is now being tested and by the end of this year, we will be able to provide a blueprint of that chip. Market penetration will start slowly and once people will see the benefits, it will explode. We are going for a new type of a technology that’s called Inverse NavIC. It will be positioned around the airports and we will have receivers which will locate the position with respect to the ground transmitters and LAN. GAGAN can allow up to 250 meters height, but below 250 meters auto landing, this system will be useful. This is another by-product of the NavIC. We have built the technology and are on the verge of testing it. It's very compact and we want to make it very cost effective. Today, we have a Gagan hardware and Gagan equipment and this new system will enable UAV operations very precisely. When you need an accuracy of 1 meters to operate UAV’s then you need this system spread all across the city. Q. Do you see it will supersede GAGAN? GAGAN limit is up to 250 meters height. Q. There are people who are suggesting to use GAGAN on the ground also? For all ground service, we use GAGAN. When the matter of life is involved [like in landing of a plane] they are very conservative. If you say one meter accuracy, they will take it as 5 meters and give certification. Q. So, we see GAGAN, NavIC all operating within their own sphere but in co-operation. At present in co-operation, but if one technology progresses, another technology has to die over a time. Once the product becomes cheaper and receivers become small that can be even put in a drone then it can change lot of things.

The biggest iceberg breaks off Antarctica's Larsen C ice shelf
Subscribe to our channel- https://www.youtube.com/user/geospatialmedia A giant section of Antarctic ice shelf has broken free, releasing a 5000 sq km iceberg into the Weddell Sea. That’s the same size as Trinidad and Tobago. The behemoth iceberg weighs more than a million million tonnes and contains about the same amount of water as Lake Ontario in North America. Witnessed by the Copernicus Sentinel-1mission, the iceberg, born out of Larcen C ice shelf, is the biggest recorded so far. Scientists from Project MIDAS, used radar images from the Copernicus Sentinel-1 mission to keep a close eye on the rapidly changing situation. The fissure first appeared several years ago, but seemed relatively stable until January 2016. In January 2017 alone it travelled 20 km, reaching a total length of about 175 km. It will not itself result in sea level rises. Much like and ice cube melting in a glass of water, it is already floating and if it melts it doesn’t change the sea level. But the shelf is an essential barrier, holding back the glaciers that feed it. Without it, ice would flow rapidly from land to sea. If the Antarctic ice shelves were to fully melt, the rise in sea level could be devastating.

What makes GSAT-19 a Game Changer Satellite
GSAT-19 was launched on GSLV MKIII payload by ISRO. GSAT-19 is being termed as the 'Game Changer’ Satellite by ISRO. What makes GSAT-19 A Game Changer Satellite? We spoke exclusively to the Director of Space Application Center [SAC] to find out more details. Q. So the naughty boy became the good boy. You talked about the satellite that it's a game changer. In what way is it a game changer? Ans- today you have a mobile there. Cells are there. If the cell is big then the number of the population becomes big... but the central antenna, which is transmitting, has the same capability. So if the cell is big then per capita data rate is less. That’s the reason why we have call drops. Cells, which were built 15 years ago with a certain population density. They are not able to sustain coz population has increased, the number of users has increased and per capita, data rate has reduced. And since an operator cannot manage that, he stops your calls. Imagine that if I focus on a narrow area then per capita data rate increases. And it is exactly like the cellular architecture, but all the central antenna of the cells is shifted to satellite. GSAT 11- will be launched in the beginning of next year. Prior to those lots of ground, technologies have to experiment... it’s a KA band now. The future is in KA band...but the user is comfortable with KU Band. We put user terminals in KU band and the half in KA bands. Covering the 60% of India, covering almost all major minor cities. GSAT 20 - Which will be flying at the end of next year. It will be KA cross KA. We have to graduate the user from transponder to selective data rate requirement. All the KA band electronics will be developed in India. Visual experience will improve. We will have more data rates for DTH...that will improve the visual quality of HD channels. Q. Will you also include the Internet in that? Yes! For the Internet, we have to go through a via media. Because for the Internet you have to transmit also. In that regard, what we have proposed is that we will have a central receiving station with a large antenna. So that it can support a very large bandwidth. It will distribute the signal horizontally through wifi. Because today all these smart cities are coming up with wifi. Through wifi, you can connect even a remote village through wifi. One may argue that why not lay out fiber cable. But that is for big cities. If you have to connect a remote village of Jharkhand then you need wifi. In future, the cost will come down, as everything will be made in India. It will become backbone coz it is high data rate capable [GSAT-19] at a much cheaper cost using satellite.

'Location intelligence is becoming more mainstream’ says Pitney Bowes VP
Manish Choudhary, Vice President, Global Engineering and MD, India, Pitney Bowes Inc. Geospatial Industry and location intelligence is becoming more mainstream. E-commerce business and other vertical industries are using location element to make more realistic and smart decision. Power of mobile computing devices is increasing very fast as cost is getting lower. Cloud is the second element where numbers of applications and processing are getting connected through APIs. Penetration of Internet with perfect intersection of processing power Application and mobile data connectivity is another big thing. We were leaders in commerce 100 years back. We did more than 200 million geo-coding points, processed 800 million statements for a bank and were able to take billions of points for a large telecom provider. We have launched new branding campaign for our self which we call as craftsman of commerce. We probably have the best datasets available. We have trained 100 of engineers with Big Data, Mobile, Cloud, SaaS analytics. That's right, as now consumers are making the decision. Consumer wants customize application based on their preferences and location. Consumer experience can be transformed through technology and mobile where location will play important role. I think cloud sourcing is going to be a key part. With the technology and applied analytics platform we are using cloud saas in processing and harnessing the power of cloud. We recently had partnership with GE where we are supporting predicts platform. Industrial use cases like mining, power, health and safety aviation transportation are also using Location Intelligence. Smart Cities and Swachh Bharat initiative in India are one of the big things where location, geospatial data and maps can solve many big problems. User behaviour is becoming very sophisticated. Users don't want spam or junk; they want accurate information. With the use of technology, location, analytics, data and map consumer experiences can be made more seamless.

Geospatial Hall of Fame : Jack Dangermond: The Godfather of GIS
Jack Dangermond is the unrivaled king of GIS technology, the specialized software used for creating digital maps. He founded his company, Environmental Systems Research Institute (Esri), in 1969. Dangermond founded ESRI to perform land use analysis; however, its focus evolved into GIS software development, highlighted by the release of ARC/INFO in the early 1980s; the development and marketing of ARC/INFO positioned ESRI with the dominant market share among GIS software developers. Today ESRI is the largest GIS software developer in the world and its flagship product, ArcGIS, traces its heritage to Dangermond's initial efforts in developing ARC/INFO. Esri currently dominates the industry, with over 40% of global GIS market share and more than $1 billion in annual revenue.
