Described are systems, methods, computer programs, and user interfaces for image location, acquisition, analysis, and data correlation. Results obtained via image analysis are correlated to non-spatial information. For example, images of regions of interest of the Earth are used for ESAs. Imagery and derived information delivered via the systems and methods described herein have the potential to provide the timely, accurate, and objective information about distributed global locations a user needs to identify current or potential risk and hazards associated with interaction between commercial activities and the environment. Although ESA information is formed from the integration of a broad variety of data sources, many of which involve ground-based scientific measurements, the systems and methods of the present disclosure can add value by contributing objective, quantitative information about physically observable materials from a remote perspective. Keywords associated with the present disclosure include: image acquisition, satellite imagery drone imagery, environmental site assessments, environmental contamination, vegetative land cover.
