Case Studies

We work with some of the world's most prominent companies to give them the key Earth observation and geospatial data insights they need to be successful. Here are their stories.

ForestRe

In recent years, largely because of climate change, the ForestRe team saw a greater demand for clarity on the provenance of the data and relevant risk assessment data. More than ever, the underwriters at ForestRe needed accurate data to assess risk.

They surveyed the market looking for an application that would process EO data in a simple, fast, and effortless manner. ForestRe chose Earth Blox to meet their needs.
"Pre-Earth Blox, it would take us days to get an end-result. With Earth Blox, we're down to 10 minutes from start to finish - and have confidence in the results." - Phil Cottle, Head of Forestry, ForestRe

STRATA: UNEP's Earth Stress Monitor

As we start to see the impacts of climate change, there are growing concerns over how cumulative changes in the environment impact livelihoods. The links between environmental change, climate stresses, conflict and vulnerability of populations are complex, and access to data on such topics is not straightforward.

This was the rationale behind the development of Strata, delivered through a collaboration between Earth Blox, the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), and the University of Edinburgh. Strata was co-designed as a tool to assist over 130 UN country teams bring together data from diverse sources and give them greater clarity on where stresses were at their highest.
"UNEP is thrilled to join forces with Earth Blox. This is version 4+++ of what’s available on the market, and could deliver a significant impact for climate and environment risk management." - David Jensen, Head of the United Nations Environmental Peacebuilding Programme
