Maximizing Efficiency: 5 Reasons to Start Using Data from Space in Real Estate and Land Management
Let’s explore the key benefits of using satellite data in real estate and land management for all kinds of industrial and commercial facilities.
Using SpaceKnow data to track US construction activity (SNN#18)
SpaceKnow indices can be used to track US Building Permits, Housing Starts, and non-residential construction spending. Our indices recovered slightly in Q4 2022, suggesting that the outlook for the US construction industry is improving from weak conditions last year.
What’s happening in the Russian cement industry? SNN#6
Satellite analysis on the Russian cement industry. As Russia stops sharing public cement production data, SpaceKnow is able to close the data gap with its nowcasting activity indices.
Why did China cut rates? A View from Space SNN#5

Satellites, AI & Urbanization: A Modern Approach To Urban Planning and Monitoring
Public and private service providers need reliable and up-to-date information about the urban landscape in order to efficiently plan maintenance, improvement and building of infrastructure. Satellites orbiting the Earth generate vast amounts of unstructured data. Using AI, we are able to analyze this data instantaneously and provide decision makers with unique insights into urban monitoring worldwide.
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.
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 […]
