Demonstration of the DigitalGlobe InsightExplorer Marine Mapping Program and its IUU Fishing Applications

This webinar originally aired on 25 October 2016.

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.

This webinar was presented by Alyson Kauffman and Vipul Prasad of DigitalGlobe, and it was co-sponsored by the EBM Tools Network (co-coordinated by NatureServe and OpenChannels.org) and MEAM.
