Who can benefit from the Living Library?

Satellite imagery users who need accurate and reliable data - the possibilites are endless

Defence and Security

Multi-temporal satellite imagery is routinely used to gain insights into past activities, patterns and changes in specific areas. Whether the assessments are used for analysis, mission planning, training and simulation or damage assemessment, historical data from the Living Library can offer a wealth of information.


Mapping companies can compare older imagery to newer imagery to identify change in infrastructure, land use, geographical features and analyse features such as road networks, buildings, vegetation, bodies of water and terrain. A deep archive can also help users identify patterns of urbanisation, infrastructure development, vegetation encroachment, environmental monitoring, and much more.


The Living Library can be used to gain a better understanding of historical patterns of crop growth and health. Historical data can be used to assess development patterns, growth anomolies, change in vegetation patterns or pest infestations. Analysing data over multiple growing seasons can help provide input for yield estimations and forecasting, as well as support for crop insurance and risk assessment.

Oil & Gas

Historical imagery can provide oil and gas companies with information that can help pinpoint areas with high exploration potential, saving time and resources. Users can also compare imagery to identify change and detect potential leaks, monitor infrastructure conditions as well as the environmental impact caused by operations to effectivlely implement mitagation measures.

A multi-resolution imagery archive

The Living Library includes a selection of curated imagery that is updated everyday and includes: 30cm, 50cm and 1.5m resolution data
