Global Activity Monitoring
and Economic Nowcasting
Macro monitor of global economies
with a specific focus on the impact of coronavirus
SpaceKnow monitors tens of thousands of locations globally in near real time using a variety of space based sensors. The SpaceKnow advantage is our AI/ML based technology to analyze billions of observations to study changes at locations. Those ‘changes’ are multiple forms of activity that range from factory output to movement of product through supply chain points to construction or production at oil wells, ports, mines or any location that can be observed from space.
Countries Covered So Far
SpaceKnow’s location database has classifications of location-specific knowledge that allows clients to query activity at a ‘topic’ level (coal facilities, oil wells, etc). Clients can also provide locations of interest (ex. the points of a specific company or product supply chain) and SpaceKnow data can be accumulated at those locations.
Activity Measurement Indices
SpaceKnow’s Astronomics Product suite is about measuring change at locations. We offer a number of specific activity indices to measure activity:
Combining monitoring factors - Model of Activity
SpaceKnow combines the different activity measures to create models to estimate economic or other activity benchmarks. We offer models that track and forecast the following:
- Industrial Production and Purchasing Managers Surveys of Factory Output (PMIs)
- Trade (Exports, Imports)
- Electricity Consumption
- Housing (starts and completions)
- other topics that have publically available benchmarks
Models are designed to serve a specific purpose and can be bespoke designs to answer specific client questions.
Accessible Satellite imagery Analysis as never before
Satellite Imagery technology used to be available only to governments and big corporates in the past. We changed it.
