As a critical part of its mission to help decision makers understand what we are doing on and to the Earth, Orbital Insight is building a platform for large scale analysis of geospatial data including satellite and drone imagery and global IOT data - with proprietary AI to analyze economic, social, and environmental trends at scale. The platform allows customers to ask and answer questions about the physical world -- much as a search engine answers questions about the virtual world.
