Deal struck over ‘revolutionary’ soil satellite mapping technology

UK surveying company Central Alliance (an RSK company) has struck a partnership with a US software firm to bring “a revolutionary new method of mapping soil properties from space”.

Central Alliance, says the technology will allow it to assist organisations by mapping the ground remotely from space using innovative satellite imaging analysis.

Central Alliance combines geology, hydrogeology, hydrology, drainage, utility mapping and examination reports to provide a risk map for critical infrastructure.
