Infrastructural monitoring through satellite imagery can provide critical checkpoints for infrastructural monitoring which can prevent accidents from happening in the future. Space technology can provide very valuable data which can be used for social, technological, geological and industrial projects. It can be used by innovators to create new technologies and algorithms for Earth monitoring and analysis. Social demographic analysis can be used by NGOs to support their motives with proof and data. Technologically it can be used for data analysis an interpretation for other industries. Geologically, it can be used for monitoring and predicting geological events based on markers like earthquakes, volcanoes and storms. It can be used by different industries to decide best places to setup their factories like in case of a steel plant, the owner would like to set up at a lace which is near to the source to avoid transportation costs, where there is high population to provide for labour and other basic raw materials like water etc.
