Monitoring Human Settlements from Space – Brittany Zajic (Geo4Dev 2018)


Brittany Zajic oversees disaster and humanitarian response operations at Planet, an integrated aerospace and data analytics company that operates history’s largest fleet of Earth-imaging satellites. Planet’s Disaster Response Program originated in 2016 and remains committed to making imagery available directly to the public, volunteers, humanitarian organizations, and other coordinating bodies.

Brittany Zajic’s talk is titled: Monitoring human settlements.

The 2nd Annual Symposium on Geospatial Analysis for International Development (Geo4Dev) focused on geospatial research that addresses climate- and conflict-driven migration and humanitarian response. This includes observation and modeling of migration and human settlement patterns (in response to climate or conflict stressors), as well as the design and evaluation of interventions for humanitarian crises, mass migration, and community resilience.

Geo4Dev is a yearly event focused on the use of novel geospatial data and analytic techniques to address issues of poverty, sustainable development, urbanization, climate change, and economic growth in developing countries and beyond. This includes a particular emphasis on the use of emerging geo-tagged big data, including satellite, social media, and CDR datasets.
