For the week of 17 October 2016
Greetings OpenChannels Community Members,
Join us this coming Tuesday (25 October) at 1pm EDT / 10am PDT / 5pm UTC for a Webinar Demonstration of the DigitalGlobe InsightExplorer Marine Mapping Program and its IUU Fishing Applications.
The DigitalGlobe InsightExplorer platform is a marine mapping program that allows users to display multiple layers of information and allows for fish catch reporting. In addition to oceanographic data layers such as plankton and sea surface temperatures, users can also display satellite and terrestrial AIS data, as well as vessel positions from VMS. InsightExplorer combines synthetic aperture radar (SAR) and AIS technologies with advanced behavioral analytics to provide users with the most comprehensive viewing method for authorities to monitor and manage all maritime activities within their area of jurisdiction. For IUU fishing detection, DigitalGlobe helps monitoring agencies narrow search areas by providing fishing activity prediction capabilities, vessel behavior detection, zone infringement alerts (for EEZ’s, MPAs, etc.), and high-resolution satellite images of potentially illegal activity.
