Carte d'extension des incendies sur l'île de Thasos, en Grèce

Map of the extent of fires on the island of Thasos, Greece. This image was produced by SERTIT (Regional Agency for Image Processing and Remote Sensing), an ICube laboratory platform. In the event of disasters, it provides within a short time the geodata derived from space imaging to risk and crisis management stakeholders. A leading national operator, SERTIT is a major player in emergency mapping for civil security agencies, the European Commission, and international organisations and is opening its activity to the insurance market.

Our work is guided by the way scientists question the world around them and we translate their research into images to help people to understand the world better and to awaken their curiosity and wonderment.
