NGIS has announced the launch of a new brand,EO Data Science, a dedicated entity that leverages earth observations, data science and Cloud technology to address specific outcomes and create solutions for various industries globally.
In a world where news headlines are dominated by climate change debate, illegal deforestation and mining activity in the Amazon and natural disaster stories - remote sensing technology is at the forefront of helping organisations gain fast insights and demonstrate impact quickly, where it would previously take days or weeks to show sudden environmental change.
“We could see the need for a dedicated earth observations capability at NGIS with a focused team of data scientists, software engineers and machine learning experts that work together to build truly innovative solutions,” said Nathan Eaton, Executive Director, NGIS Australia.
The EO Data Science mission is to work in partnership with its clients to create amazing insights and last mile solutions, in addition to working with innovative leaders to make an impact on the challenges we face as a global community, such as climate change and sustainability.
By partnering withGoogle Earth Engine, EO Data Science builds solutions that leverage the data provided and managed through the platform, complemented with an organisations own data to create formidable decision-making tools.
“With so many new satellites being launched, organisations can now leverage a range of content from providers to create scalable, fit for purpose solutions. Google Earth Engine will take earth observations to another level by providing an end to end pipeline for insight and monitoring at scale,” said Sam Atkinson, Manager of Earth Observations at EO Data Science.
