How Rapid Satellite 3D Mapping is Helping At-Risk Island Nations Build Climate Resilience


Terrabotics worked with Jacobs Engineering (New Zealand) to rapidly and accurately survey the land topography and shallow water bathymetry around the South Tarawa and Temaiku island atoll, part of the Kiribati Pacific island nation.

Kiribati is threatened by sea-level changes, and this satellite-enabled project served to help Jacobs Engineering design and plan for climate resilience programmes for commissioned by the UN and the government of Kiribati.

The stunning results were presented to the UN and at COP25.

Explore the results for yourself here in this interactive story web map below:
