AI-powered monitoring at previously unobtainable speed and scale
The world is changing rapidly. Every day, cities grow, crops are planted, forests are harvested, droughts and floods are on the rise … and all of this affects the infrastructure, food systems, water supplies, and natural resources that we depend on. IO Monitor enables decision makers to understand risks and anticipate change, in near-real-time.Order Now
Spotlighting change in the areas you care about
Impact Observatory’s innovative AI-powered methods automate and accelerate Land Use Land Cover mapping and monitoring in near-real-time. IO Monitor uses a unique deep learning approach to classify land use and land cover categories globally using state-of-the-art Copernicus Sentinel-2 imagery. Custom land use and land cover change maps are available for any area of interest, over user-specified time periods, from 2018 to the present (refreshed daily).
IO Monitor’s maps are created from near real-time imagery, allowing customers to scale access from small areas to entire countries, anywhere in the world, as soon as the satellite imagery is published.
Select or customize an area of interest and the time period you want to monitor.
IO Monitor maps are priced by the square kilometer up to 15,000 km2 and available from IO Store without an account. Larger areas have tier pricing by volume, making purchases for states, provinces, or entire countries straightforward.
Timely, actionable data for insights and decisions
Agricultural expansion can lead to deforestation, soil degradation, loss of biodiversity, and water pollution, and unhealthy crops can create food insecurity. IO Monitor can help assess risks to food systems as well as the surrounding ecosystems by comparing the amount of land under agricultural production to previous growing seasons. One example is the expansion of agricultural land into rainforest areas of South America, clearly visible in this sample data from Bolivia.
Deforestation is a significant contributor to climate change and a challenge for corporations and governments around the world. For organizations committed to being Deforestation Free, IO Monitor can help identify where supply chains impact tree loss, and provide quarterly change results in the regions where companies operate.
Cities around the world are growing at incredible rates. IO Monitor can help to verify the magnitude and spatial patterns of this rapid urban expansion. In the span of one year, land in the designated New State Area, Xiong’an, China, shows increases of built area. This same growth can be seen in cities around the world such as New Cairo (Egypt), The Line (Saudi Arabia), and Las Vegas, United States.
Forests act as natural water filters, improving the quality of water by removing pollutants and sediment. Trees also help reduce the risk of both floods and droughts. IO Monitor can help assess where forest loss has occurred and might lead to an impact on critical watersheds and downstream communities. Customers use this data to assess risks and prioritize action plans. Tree loss due to conflict increases risk to the downstream Dnipro Reservoir in Ukraine, which can be seen in these results.
