The technique Remote Sensing has been used for decades to monitor the earth from the air or from space. Aerial photos and satellite imagery provide a unprecedented source of information for spatial questions in the conservation of natural reserves, urban development, industry, change detection, disaster prevention, water quality and many more fields. However, the analysis of remote sensing data is often still performed manually, and is dependent on human experts investigating the data. Ilionx is combining open-source Sentinel satellite data with deep learning methods, to create intelligent, scalable and economically feasible services. During the talk, applications in natural monitoring, agricultural damage appraisal and change monitoring will be explained.
