GERMANY:- At INTERGEO 2018, Picterra introduced the BETA version of their AI object-detection and
analytics platform to the professional geospatial community.
We are currently in an age where Earth observation data —captured daily by satellites,
drones, and other data collection platforms— is abundant and research in artificial
intelligence for object detection is booming but still exploitable only by machine learning
experts. To bridge this gap, Picterra has built an online platform making AI object detection
on Earth observation imagery simple and accessible to everyone.
Simplifying complexity, making AI usable and useful. Picterra’s solution is an interactive,
self-service AI platform designed to extract and deliver structured insights from satellite and
aerial imagery.
The platform allows users to upload their own imagery, access trusted satellite data sources
and tap into a powerful yet easy-to-use AI-powered toolkit to process and analyze this data.
This enables them to derive meaningful insights, monitor trends and reveal time-bound
shifts.
The platform aims to serve geospatial professionals, business, NGOs, researchers, and
Public Sector Organizations looking for highly-specialized geospatial analytics to support
and empower their decision-making.
At the same time, Picterra’s goal is to make available an easy-to-use system gives engaged
citizens and journalists access to a number of exciting tools. This includes accessing satellite
imagery from anywhere in the world, detecting critical features, identifying trends, running
analytics to quantify their impact and monitoring change over time.
