SkyWatch and Picterra have announced a new partnership, with the pair hoping to “democratise access to satellite data and machine learning”.
Together, the duo are starting a joint programme, combining their individual offerings.
SkyWatch claims to be building the infrastructure for the automated distribution of earth observation data.
Its EarthCache provides developers with the tools they need to add earth observation data into their applications and workflows.
Meanwhile, Picterra is an AI software-as-a-service platform, enabling businesses to autonomously extract intelligence and analytics from satellite, aerial, and drone imagery.
With this partnership, Picterra’s customers can now automatically monitor their areas of interest for change, thanks to a combination of EarthCache’s automated tasking request feature and Picterra’s automated detection algorithms.
The companies claimed that “previously unseen” monitoring capabilities are now made available to anyone.
“Partners such as Picterra allow us to further our mission to make earth observation more accessible,” said James Slifierz, CEO and co-founder of SkyWatch. “By allowing companies to automatically and easily create geospatial analytics, Picterra helps solve another piece of the ‘space-to-application’ puzzle.”
