Advances in earth observation data from satellites, planes and drones have opened up a world of opportunity in the digital geography space, and we want to tell you about it: What is digital geography? How is it changing the way we do business, and why should you care? Come answer these questions and learn how Orbica is turning data into wisdom by combining the best of geoprocessing with the latest advancements in artificial intelligence (AI) to extract and classify features of the earth’s surface from 3-band imagery. We call it GeoAI.
You’ll also learn about how we can use remote sensing and geospatial AI to better understand how our actions are impacting land and environmental change, we’ll give you real-life examples of data visualisation and GeoAI, and leave you with some practical skills and insights into how geospatial tech is helping organisations better understand their business and make better decisions.
You should be present for the whole duration of this event.
