Supercomputers to fuel Bluesky’s 3D maps, national datasets

UK: Aerial mapping company Bluesky plans to use high performance computers to process the hundreds of terabytes of raw data, which it captures every year through its annual programme across the United Kingdom. The company has already devised workflows to create region-wide maps of sun shadow — required to gauge the effectiveness of solar panel installations — by collaborating with HPC Midlands and experts from Germany’s Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT). Now, it is looking to process and deliver 3D maps, comprising trillions of data points, for a range of environmental applications, like National Tree Map, air pollution models and thermal heat loss surveys.
