Introduction

The emergence and spread of COVID-19 has forced governments around the world to implement strict measures in an attempt to curb the spread of the virus. These interventions, however, had a large economic impact, affecting industrial output, demand, and supply chains. Although essential for navigating policy responses and investment decisions…


Remote Sensing Technologies are being used to determine the physical properties of land and what it is used for. Deforestation/reforestation, illegal logging, safety of critical infrastructure like power lines and railway lines, and vegetation health are among the many use cases for this technology. Although there are excellent products built…
