Environmental Risk

Modelling & Understanding Environmental Interactions

Through innovative methods and solutions our community we explore environmental understanding from Earth Observation data. Whether it be understanding drainage within a basin from LiDAR, using machine learning to classify landcover or mapping climate hazards from satellite products.


Processing & Analysis of Environmental Datasets

Sior’s processing hardware and power is world leading, having processed imagery for the second largest basin in the world the Congo Basin. With a vast knowledge of Environmental Observational Data from LiDAR, satellite and real time data collection.


Visualising Complex Environmental Dynamics

Our community aims to unlock the full potential of each dataset we work with. Through the use of Machine Learning and AI, we identify patterns and complex relationships in and between datasets to aid understanding of the world around us.

Environmental Data Science

Natual Hazard Data Analysis

Through development of risk geodatabases, creating customised decision making models to intuitive visualisation of risk output, Sior provides comprehensive technical support for natural hazard analysis. The main areas we specialise in are Hydrological Risk Hazard, Climate Risk Hazard, & Geotechnical Risk Hazard.


Hazard & Risk Mapping

Whether as a WebApp, StoryMap, drawings or 3D flyover video, Sior has the modern software understanding to visualize hazard, exposure, vulnerability and risk mapping in an interpretable and intuitive format. Our team draws on the power of geospatial data to highlight at risk areas by statistical relationships between the components of risk.


Resilience & Adaptation Plans

Our team infers insight from hazard, risk, exposure and adaptive capacity maps to prepare resilience strategies and adaptation plans for sustainable development, restoration or other practices.
