We are only starting to scratch the surface of what the data can tell us and how organizations can use it for the good of their businesses, their constituents, and the planet. We collaborate with our partners to identify their needs and arrive at the output that is meaningful to them.
Hyperspectral data has been typically collected through aerial flight, given its need for high spatial and spectral resolution. Now, through our constellation of low-orbiting, high resolution satellites, you can analyze issues of concern or opportunity anywhere on the planet. With its collection uniformity there’s better accuracy and improved opportunity to employ automation
Hyperspectral data can tell you how “healthy” a given target or area is and whether there is any impending risk or possible reward. It helps to answer questions such as:
- Where is the best location to farm, mine, etc.?
- Are there ecological threats to my business?
- Are certain activities a danger to the environment?
- What will be my commercial yield?
- Is there risk of fire or smoke damage?
- What is roof or structure’s condition?
Traditional imagery provides shape and surface texture, multi-spectral imagery provides basic color, but hyperspectral imagery provides material composition. We can identify specific materials through their detailed spectral “fingerprint” for greater accuracy. It can answer questions such as:
- What is something made of?
- If vegetation, what kind is it?
- Is it something other than what it appears to be?
- For what is an area of land being used?
