New land motion map shows the human impact on the UK landscape

Description
GERC Assistant Professor in Earth Observation, Dr Stephen Grebby, along with Dr Andy Sowter from Geomatic Ventures Ltd, who developed groundbreaking technology which was used to create the first country-wide land motion map of Scotland, have scored another first by creating a new UK-wide ground motion map. The new UK-wide map covers a two-year period from 2015 to 2017 and was created using an Intermittent Small Baseline Subset (ISBAS) analysis, a novel satellite remote sensing data processing algorithm.
