Why We Are Measuring Every Building In Australia And Why You Should Care

There have been vast improvements in technologies in recent years with enhancements in satellite imagery, machine learning and big data being only just a few. Together with the latest satellite data release provided by Geoscape, we added 1.5 million buildings to our database and are now able to capture location based insights for every address in the country and almost 15 million buildings in total!

Why We Are Measuring Every Building In Australia And Why You Should Care

There have been vast improvements in technologies in recent years with enhancements in satellite imagery, machine learning and big data being only just a few. Together with the latest satellite data release provided by Geoscape, we added 1.5 million buildings to our database and are now able to capture location based insights for every address in the country and almost 15 million buildings in total!

By using spatial machine learning it is now possible - for the first time - to get precision 3D data for all buildings structures, trees, pools, solar panels, and landcover across the country.

Here are three great reasons you should be interested in Geospatial data:

1. Make Better Business and Urban Planning Decisions

Businesses can use spatial data analytics to make location based decisions before they enter an area. This allows them to plan ahead well into the future by taking into account a multitude of data layers, ranging from demographic to structural changes and detailed location insight. It has never been easier for Urban Planners to create interactive 2D and 3D models of entire cities instantly during the design and decision making phase.

2. Predict Future Developments and Natural Risks

Available transport, current or future land use and other amenities can be mapped and tracked. This allows local councils to efficiently plan and develop cities and towns, so that they can predict future developments and react accordingly using spatial intelligence and compliance technologies.

Property and Home Insurance companies benefit from detailed tracking of structures and vegetation for risk analysis due to natural hazards such as fire, flood, or storm damage. Spatial machine learning adds unprecedented accuracy for these risk predictions as well as physical models to forecast the impact of future climate change on micro scales.

3. Market Products to the Right Consumers

Companies in the solar or pool business can search and filter the data to find which homes already have solar panels or pools. Once the data is filtered, these companies can market products to potential customers more efficiently by identifying the homes with the most potential to need their service. Using the data in this way will allow businesses to optimise their marketing efforts and be more competitive in the marketplace with the right messages for the right customers.

There are many more transformative applications and we are helping businesses and communities to find innovative solutions in the rapidly changing urban environment. Find out how you can leverage the efficiency of satellite technology.
