“Orbital Insight tracks global oil storage [by] checking the shadows of floating roof tanks in China to determine how much they are filled. Such tanks are storage facilities whose roof floats on the surface of the stored liquid. In 2016, it combed the country’s satellite images for previously unknown storage facilities.”
