Terrafirma.eu.com: A pan-European ground hazard information service
Currently unavailable
Introduction to Users of Terrafirma Services

Terrafirma services are delivered to civil protection agencies, disaster management organisms, and coastal, rail and motorway authorities to support the process of risk assessment and mitigation.

Its products couple advanced satellite interferometry products with expert interpretation.

Terrafirma has consolidated and standardized the supply of interferometry products from the European companies specialising in this type of processing. In combination with this, the project has federated most of Europe’s national geological surveys, provided services to Europe’s civil protection agencies and enrolled high profile engineering companies. This federation not only forms a primary user-base, but also provides the best source of the interpretation and value-adding skills necessary to maximize the products’ utility. Terrafirma, therefore, represents a single point of contact for information on terrain motion hazards in Europe.
