MAPSGEO have started a New Department:
(Fast Decision Support System – FDSS)
MAPSGEO-FDSS department adopt a new strategy using:
1- Big Data,
2- Remote Sensing,
3- Artificial Intelligence.
MAPSGEO-FDSS department adopt a new strategy using big data, remote sensing and artificial intelligence, that allows for more informed decision-making, timely problem-solving, and improved efficiency in dealing with issues or operations, planning, and even management. The FDSS department is supervised and lead by two Ph.D. Doctors.
This strategy improves the quality of decision to be more effective, fast and powerful with the real time situation. MAPSGEO-FDSS will provide a computerized system that gathers and analyzes data, synthesizing it to produce comprehensive information reports and guidance to the user using information flows from social media, sensors, satellite images and other non-traditional data.
The idea behind FDSS-Department is to develop information systems that manage geospatial, satellite images, and big data in order to support timely policy maker decision for public, private, and international organizations to take the necessary actions and mitigate the risks.
- Big Remote Sensing Solution: FDSS department provide solutions for remote sensing challenges that can be characterized by:
a. The increase volume of the archived data from terabytes & more
b. The multi-dimensional of satellite images in terms of
Multi-Source, Multi-Resolution, Multi-Temporal &
the variety of application domains;
c. The efficiency of data processing & analysis generated at a rapid
growing rate in terms of velocity of big data in remote sensing.
- GeoMarketing Solution: FDSS department provide solutions for public, private and international organizations using big data that show the degree of satisfaction of customers in the market.
- Decision Support System Solution: FDSS department develops information systems for public, private and international organizations that support timely the decision makers with the relevant indicators.
Leveraging the broad variety of Optical (Day & Nighttime) and Radar satellite data sources available, MAPSGEO offers expertise and turn-key solutions in a variety of application domains, including:
Oil & gas, mining: natural seep detection to reduce risk of new exploration, infrastructure site selection and route planning, monitoring of subsidence and environmental impact assessments.
Nighttime light observations from remote sensing provide us with a timely and spatially explicit measure of human activities and therefore enable a host of applications such as tracking urbanization and socioeconomic dynamics, evaluating armed conflicts and disasters, investigating fisheries, assessing greenhouse energy use, and analyzing light pollution and health effects.
The new and improved sensors, algorithms, and products for nighttime lights, in association with other Earth observations and ancillary data (e.g., geo-located big data), together offer great potential for a deep understanding of human activities and related environmental consequences in a changing world.
MAPSGEO along with its satellite provider offers nighttime optical imagery for any region in the world assisting its clients with turn-key solutions within above-said application needs.
MAPSGEO along with its aerial photography partners who own various type of aerial survey aircraft are equipped with up-to-date digital aerial cameras having various high-resolution to meet all kind of digital mapping project requirements.
MAPSGEO with the gained experince in the generation of accurate terrain and surface models that are used in the production of Orthophoto, volume computations, cut/fill, drainage, water flow directions , catchment basin and other services as well as in 3D City modeling.
Satellites provide an ideal platform to enable non-intrusive monitoring of locations, regardless of how remote they may be. Infrastructure or environmental changes whether over many years or from day- to- day can be readily observed.
Urban/Regional planning: creation of large- or small- scale topographic mapping for use in spatial data infrastructure development, land use planning and permitting.
Transportation and utility maps: pre-feasibility, route planning for transportation (roads, rail, etc.), pipeline and power line corridors, including land cover, geohazards, geology, etc.
MAPSGEO has the know-how to produce airport obstacle charts using latest technology based on the use of aerial sourcse such as Aerial Photography, Satellite Imagery that meets the International Civil Aviation Organization standards.
MAPSGEO has vast experience on providing elevation, profiles and reports highlighting on critical slope zones that should be avoided for safety constructions.
Generation of deformation maps using InSAR imagery, by comparing the changed components of the return signals - the 'phase shift' - from many passes, using complex algorithms which reveals the detailed surface movement.
The deformation map generated shows the land deformation of any area or infrastructure site in mm/yr.
1. Timely detect stressed area on your fields with NDVI, MSAVI, NDRE, NDMI, RECI indices.
2. Perform historical analysis based on 5 year satellite data and 10 year weather data.
3. Detect correlation between weather data (precipitation, soil moisture, heat/cold stress) and vegetation deviations.
4. Keep crop rotation data and other records in a single source.
Benefits of local receiving ground station (Physical or Virtual):
· Download immediately the freshly collected Data.
· Images collected are available few minutes after collection.
· Processing starts immediately in local data center.
· Geospatial information made available to analysts immediately.

The new generation of very high resolution optical satellite sensors have the capability of generating accurate Digital Elevation Models (DEM), Digital Terrain Models (DTM) or Digital Surface Models (DSM) with or without ground control. These Digital Terrain Models are used for high-quality image orthorectification, contour mapping, water body identification, flood modeling and 3D visualisation.
MAPSGEO along their expert partners provide Telecom Dataset Elevation Layers such DTM, DLU, DHM clutters
MAPSGEO offer a comprehensive range of services such as DEM generation, vector feature extraction, orthorectification, interpretation and information extraction and production of derived maps and reports. Using these skills 2D & 3D visualisations can be generated to meet project requirements.
We undertake extensive satellite imagery product development, tailored to fit our customer’s requirements, including in-house developed radiometric and geometric corrections and visualization tools.
MAPSGEO had partnered with skilled geospatial offices to provide further intelligent data processing services such as satellite derived bathymetry, environmental coastal zone mapping and water quality in addition studies for landslides and Land subsidence.
Land cover classification across a wide variety of terrain and image scales can be undertaken to support geological, agricultural, environmental or logistical projects. Using semi-automatic techniques, which are primarily based on the spectral properties of optical satellite data, we can provide a broad classification of land cover types.
Manual interpretation of other features such as roads (sealed, unsealed, tracks, bridges, settlements etc.) can be incorporated into the analysis to provide a series of themed layers.
MAPSGEO can create a new thematic image linked with an associated attribute database or convert the information extracted to vector data.
Satellites provide an ideal platform to enable non-intrusive monitoring of locations, regardless of how remote they may be. Infrastructure or environmental changes whether over many years or from day- to- day can be readily observed. Often archive data can be utilised to provide retrospective information and Interferometric Synthetic Aperture Radar (or InSAR) data allows monitoring of milimetre ground movements even in areas with persistent cloud. MAPSGEO can advise on which sensor is best suited to specific applications.
