How to Leverage Satellite Data Analytics to Win in Business – Part 1
It’s no secret we live in a data-driven world. As more satellites get launched into the sky, image resolution becomes finer, costs go down, and satellite data analytics becomes more useful to organizations of all kinds. This article will prepare you to leverage this advanced technology.
Using Machine Learning to Nowcast Urban Growth in Emerging Markets
More than half of the world’s population live in cities. 17 of the top 20 fastest-growing economies are cities in India. Using satellite data, we provide timely alternative data in regions where information is scarce. In this article, we use our proprietary AI/ML algorithms to analyze urban growth in the fastest-growing city in the world: Surat, India.
Analyzing the Second Wave of European Lockdowns with Satellite Data
As a second wave of COVID19 lockdowns hit Europe, we look at our new nowcasting Satellite Activity Indices (SAI) to assess the effect on economic activity. Read our blog to find out how the second wave compares to the last lockdown, and how various sectors in different countries are responding.
Analyzing the Mauritius Oil Spill with SAR Data
In late July, a cargo ship called MV Wakashio ran aground south of Mauritius, causing the biggest ecological disaster ever faced in the Indian Ocean. In this article, we use our proprietary Change Detection algorithms to analyze the crisis from space.
Will air pollution cause human extinction?
“Climate change remains the single greatest threat to the livelihoods, security and wellbeing of the peoples of the Pacific,” according to the Boe Declaration of the 18 countries at the 49th Pacific Islands Forum in September 2018. It’s not only carbon emissions like methane (CH4) and carbon dioxide (CO2) that disturb the atmosphere and threaten climate change, […]
Increasing ocean vitality vulnerability led SpaceKnow to investigate artificial islands across the globe where the impact of trash has severely affected the ecosystem. We tracked ship activity as well as the progression of urbanization. See how the activity of ships around artificial landfills is tracked and detected by SpaceKnow analytics.
SpaceKnow Provides Insight on New Construction and Commerce
We provide our users with the capability to count cranes in construction zones and receive the precise GPS coordinates of each. Cranes represent construction, urban growth and economic activity. SpaceKnow uses ‘machine learning’ to create algorithms that detect trends in satellite imagery received from our providers like Planet, Airbus, and Digitalglobe. The images here are […]
