Advanced Analytics from Remote Sensing Data
Explanation of the Process
WEO use cutting-edge algorithms and data pipelines to extract valuable, high-resolution insights from regularly updated global satellite datasets.
We implement our analytics as operational services, not once-off studies. We prioritise ongoing and long-term solutions, ensuring clients have access to regular updates for their risk management/vegetation/planning needs.
First, satellite imagery is harvested with a global and regular coverage from visible, thermal and radar sensors.
Next, raw imagery is processed to improve data consistency by reducing the impact of clouds, shadows and calibration differences. Advanced machine learning then extracts high resolution analytics from lower resolution data.
Thirdly, verified data outputs are delivered directly into internal systems for decision-making.
We are a multi-disciplinary team of remote sensing, engineering, machine learning, project management and development experts with a shared background in understanding the environment.
Within 3 years of its founding, WEO has led five European funded feasibility studies, pilot and research projects. Beyond this we are also specialists in developing customised, state-of-the-art solutions for customers who wish to push the boundaries. We know that applied research shouldn’t take years and focus on delivering practical results to clients within pre-agreed timeframes.
We are a research partner who can be trusted to deliver as prime or subcontractor, from large Horizon Europe projects to small investigations with tight timelines.
