Geospatial Analytics

Analyze economic, societal, and environmental trends at scale

Every day, companies, investors, and governments make critical decisions without accurate information about what’s happening in the world. These decisions can change the trajectory of our economy, the environment, and national security. For example, manufacturing organizations set production schedules without sufficient visibility into their supply chains and dependency on deep-tier suppliers. Real estate companies invest billions in projects without an accurate understanding of the behavior and demographics of local communities. Consumer packaged goods companies can’t verify whether suppliers of foundational materials like palm oil are harming the environment. Governments allocate trillions in services, security, and humanitarian aid without analyzing data at the speed they need.

That is why geospatial analytics is becoming so important in today's interconnected world. Applying analytics on geolocation data enables organizations to understand what’s happening on Earth so they can make better decisions with accurate, current information.

Geospatial Intelligence

The National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) defines Geospatial intelligence, or GEOINT, as the exploitation and analysis of imagery and geospatial information to describe, assess, and visually depict physical features and geographically referenced activities on the Earth.

GEOINT can not only tell you what is happening, where it is happening, and when it is happening, but how it is happening, why it matters, and what is likely to happen next. Although the roots of GEOINT are in military intelligence, the technology is finding applications beyond national security and is being used in real estate and financial services, retail, manufacturing, and industrial operations.

Here are some of the things you can do with geospatial intelligence:

  • Identify trends across entire markets or scrutinize individual locations
  • Understand your supply chain to improve operations and offset risk
  • Keep an eye on assets and facilities to optimize operating expenses
  • Reduce asset management costs through remote monitoring
  • Identify infrastructure risks before they become expensive
  • Monitor work sites and alert for outages or anomalies
  • Monitor customer and competitor behaviors to identify revenue opportunities.

Geospatial Analytics Platform

Interested in geospatial intelligence and curious about its applications? Where and how do you start? First, you need relevant geolocation and imagery data. You need to negotiate with partners to get the right datasets. Then you will need software tools to source, process, and transform geodata. Finally, you will also need an army of GIS, data science, and analytics professionals who can develop algorithms and extract insights. And a team of developers and software engineers to build applications will be nice.

Or you can use Orbital Insight TerraScope Platform.
