It can help in planning of water management facilities which can be efficient to involve the shortest path into the city or perhaps waste disposal system planning to keep it at an accessible distance from the city meanwhile avoiding setting it up too close.
Road planning and solar farm setting up can also take help of satellite imagery for efficiency.
It can very importantly be used for setting up of Local Law enforcement agency offices to keep them according to crime demographics and fast accessibility.
Satellite observation can help measure the air quality of the local regions within an urban city to control and keep a check on pollution. Encouraging use of public transport through public awareness of pollution index can be done. In case of an emergency or disaster, satellite data can be used to track the regions hit and measure destructiveness for emergency services to be activated. It can help the emergency services to reach targeted locations while avoiding the regions affected by the disasters and also avoid the damaged roads. One major application of satellite technology in this field can be monitoring the health of the infrastructure. Public infrastructure like power lines, water pipes, railway tracks, public bridges and railway tracks can be monitored via satellite imagery on a daily basis to inspect and track the health of a structure, so that if deterioration is seen then a disaster can be averted.
