Identification of local sources of pollution is the determination of the presence of new, usually uncharacteristic physical, chemical or biological agents introduced into the environment or arising in it.

In other words, it is the process of detecting pollutants in the environment, their concentration, as well as identifying the nature of their origin.

According to the type of pollution is subdivided into anthropogenic and natural, and according to the scale there are local, regional and global pollution.

Why is it needed?

According to statistics, in 2015, 9 million people worldwide died as a result of pollution (source: Wikipedia). It becomes evident that the environmental condition of the planet is strictly monitored by global governments implementing new environmental programs (e.g., Decree of the President of the Russian Federation dated 19.04.2017 No. 176 "On the Strategy of Environmental Security of the Russian Federation for the Period up to 2025").

Organizations that violate environmental preservation face significant fines and other types of restrictions, including the possibility of their activities being prohibited.

Hence, the timely detection of harmful leaks is an essential measure, allowing not only the preservation of the environment but also safeguarding the budget of a particular enterprise. After all, it is technically easier and cheaper to eliminate hazardous substance leaks before the scale of the disaster becomes catastrophic.



  • Evaluating the environmental situation in the region;
  • Identifying violations of subsoil use regulations;
  • Identifying emergency enterprises or special facilities;
  • Preventing and eliminating oil spills.


  • Detecting the presence of emissions of harmful substances into water bodies, as well as identifying objects potentially responsible for these emissions;
  • Identifying oil spills on both land and water surfaces;
  • Identifying unauthorized solid waste disposal sites and analyzing their historical state; in some cases, it is possible to determine the predominant type of stored material (plastic, metal, etc.);
  • Determining the extent of gas emissions into the atmosphere;
  • Identifying areas of forest stands in unsatisfactory conditions, allowing for emergency measures to save the forest.

Advantages of using remote sensing data:

  • Remote assessment of territory without the need for physical presence;
  • Possibility to study any territory, regardless of its configuration and geographical location;
  • Availability of archive materials worldwide since 1999;
  • Obtaining information about a large or linearly extensive study area in a short time, and with a suitable archived satellite image, the entire area can be captured in one image, significantly simplifying further processing;
  • Conducting surveys in various spectral channels, expanding the possibilities for subsequent analysis of the territory's condition;
  • Satellite images are significantly cheaper than UAV flights, especially for studying geographically remote areas;
  • Using UAVs or aircraft is essential for researching areas with prolonged and high cloudiness over the area of interest.

Prices for services

Consultation Free of charge
Ordering Satellite Images Starting from 300 USD per image, depending on the spatial resolution of the image and the requirements of the space imaging operators for the placed order.
Image Processing, Vectorization, Technical Report Calculated individually based on the area of the study site and the technical requirements of the task.

The price for detecting local sources of pollution is calculated individually and depends on: the area of the research site; the cost of suitable satellite imaging; the accuracy of georeferencing the obtained result; the required processing of satellite images, etc.

Yes. This requires spectral analysis of space images using the SWIR infrared channel. At the moment satellites capable of SWIR data acquisition have been put into orbit and are successfully operating.
Yes. The accuracy of this metric will be influenced by the spatial resolution of the image used, as well as the degree and accuracy of its processing. It should also be taken into account that any oil slick on the surface of a water body changes its shape rather quickly due to the natural process - constant movement of water mass.
