HiView supports professionals by providing data, information and services based on ultra-high resolution imageries obtained by Flying Sensors.
HiView deploys a range of platforms on which various sensors (both in the visible and non-visible parts of the spectrum) can be mounted. Raw data is converted to information using various state-of-the-art software packages. Information is transferred to knowledge by our highly qualified scientific staff.
Science magazine KIJK interviewed Dr. Walter Immerzeel about the glaciers in the Himalayas.
The effect on the environment, melting pattern, missions to Nepal and future of the Glacier are all discussed in the interview.
HiView in co-operation with FutureWater is pleased to announce that we are one of the 39 finalists that were approved to conduct an innovative project for “Securing Water For Food: A Grand Challenge For Development”. The “Securing Water For Food” challenge was launched in 2013 at the World Water Week in Stockholm.
HiView together with the International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD and Utrecht University (the Netherlands) have for the first time in the Himalayas used Unmanned Aerial Vehicles to monitor the status of a debris covered glaciers in the Langtang valley in Nepal. The study was partially supported by ICIMOD Innovation Fund. The research findings, which have been published in the journal Remote Sensing of Environment, indicate that the glacier is in poor condition; it is hardly moving anymore and thinning slowly but gradually.
