Advanced geospatial & remote sensing analysis

CSP specializes in developing high-quality spatial analytical information and products, drawing on some of the world’s most efficient computing resources and cloud-based platforms. Our capabilities span the entire spectrum of geospatial techniques, from custom ecological and environmental data development (GIS and remote sensing based) to advanced analyses of resource use dynamics at the individual and population levels. We address conservation and management problems at the appropriate spatial and temporal scales in a cost-efficient, adaptive manner.
