Learn how location intelligence is key to facing new climate challenges

Ordnance Survey’s sustainability expert, Donna Lyndsay, outlines how the combination of mapping and new technologies can help unlock insights, and mitigate the new challenges that arise from the effects of climate change.

At OS, we want to encourage people to lead sustainable lives, and we are evolving core capabilities to help support that mission.

When facing these worldwide problems, it is imperative to track changes in environments, and the core challenges impacting them, to understand how to adapt and react. Earth observation data has been vital in understanding the changes our planet is experiencing. Working with the UK Space Agency, we took 30 years of heat data and combined this with our location expertise to produce new maps, and unlock valuable insight.

The power of the map can help our customers responding to the climate crisis.
