Shaping a Climate Resilient Future with 3D Land Cover Data
Thanks to Ecopia and Hexagon’s partnership, organizations around the world are now leveraging comprehensive, accurate, and up-to-date land cover data for a variety of use cases, including many related to enhancing global climate resilience. The level of detail provided by the 3D Nationwide Land Cover data is currently informing flood models, stormwater utility planning, and other key geospatial workflows throughout the US.
Among the many organizations utilizing 3D Nationwide Land Cover for climate analysis is the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). With the high-precision land cover data extracted from Hexagon imagery by Ecopia, NOAA is able to provide coastal areas of the contiguous US and the entire State of Alaska with impervious surface, low and high vegetation canopy, and water classification data at a resolution 30x higher than its previous offering. With this new source of truth for coastal land cover, made publicly available by NOAA, communities across the US can better adapt to a rapidly changing climate and develop mitigation strategies to become more resilient.
Other organizations leveraging data generated from the Hexagon and Ecopia partnership for climate resilience initiatives include the State of Washington, San Bernardino County Transportation Authority, and the Texas Water Development Board. The list continues to grow as more organizations across both the public and private sectors seek innovative geospatial solutions to the challenges brought about by climate change. Ecopia is excited to continue its close collaboration with Hexagon and expand its offering of high-precision geospatial information for clients around the world.
