Our understanding of landscape is about to change.
For some time, we’ve used technology to help study the Earth. New advancements will accelerate this. We now have access to oceans of remotely sensed data—and the computing power to analyze it.
Our ability to question the landscape has evolved. This evolution reveals opportunities to understand dynamic systems. These systems have critical impacts—both locally and globally.
We are building an Earth observation lab.
prescient.earth, is a new initiative led by Sparkgeo. It binds numerous data sources with cloud computing and artificial intelligence. Through this technology we will explore emerging methods for monitoring our landscape.
This is an experimental initiative focused on research and development. Advanced earth observation will allow to identify patterns quickly—almost in realtime. What we see through this will help us predict the future.
What about partnership opportunities?
Our first step is to establish working partnerships. Initially, this involves opening up a dialogue with both groups and individuals.
We’re currently taking meetings with potential industry partners. Some will play an active role in our collective R&D. Others could use our data/products in their operations. Yet others might come on as sponsors. (We anticipate similar relationships with some post-secondary institutions and NGOs.)
We also plan to partner with individuals. These will be people obsessed with geospatial technology. They might join us as contributors who participate in development. Others will access the code and content produced, for use in their own projects.
