With more than 7 billion people in our World since 2011, increasing by 1 billion every 12 years, it’s impossible to ignore the question: How are we going to produce food and energy for so many people? Today we can start to see an answer: Smarter use of natural resources of all kinds. In our industry we believe satellites, located at a vantage observation point, are an excellent source of information for taking more accurate decisions. Soon Satellogic will be contributing close to 100 TB of imagery daily, and together with other participants in the industry, we’ll be remapping the World more than daily. Now the question has escalated one or two steps: How are we going to handle so much information and what are we going to do with it? In this presentation I’m going to show you a bit of the framework we built to work with all this information, and more interesting, some concrete cases where we’ve been working close to some of our customer to solve real problems using both our multispectral and our hyperspectral imagery, sometimes fused with data from other sensors.
