Read this blog post to learn how the World Bank assesses road infrastructure faster and at less cost by using Alteia data analytics powered by Amazon Web Services (AWS), geospatial imagery, and satellite imagery available on the Registry of Open Data on AWS.
As part of the Amazon Sustainability Data Initiative (ASDI), AWS invited Nils Helset, co-founder and chief executive officer (CEO) of DigiFarm, to share how AWS Cloud technology and open data support DigiFarm’s efforts in precision farming to make agricultural practices more sustainable and efficient.
Enterprises, nonprofits, and startups around the globe are using the cloud to accelerate innovation in geospatial workflows to respond to natural disasters, fuel precision agriculture, plan city infrastructure, provide weather forecasts, and drive a myriad of other purposes. We convened an Earth on AWS session at the 2018 ESA Φ-week event, with presentations and discussions from experts showing how they’re using the AWS Cloud to unlock value from geospatial data and learn more about our world.
In a previous post, we shared a Q&A with Sinergise’s Grega Milcinski on Sentinel-2, an ongoing collection of satellite imagery of all land on Earth. We also discussed how to process and serve large amounts of data using serverless technologies, such as AWS Lambda. To date, Sentinel-2 has already produced more than 1 PB of […]
Recently, we have been sharing stories of how customers like Zooniverse and organizations like Sinergise have used the Sentinel-2 data made available via Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3). From disaster relief to vegetation monitoring to property taxation, this data set allows for organizations to build tools and services with the data that improve citizen’s […]
The explosion of Earth Observation (EO) data has driven the need to find innovative ways for using that data. We sat down with Grega Milcinski from Sinergise to discuss Sentinel-2. During its six month pre-operational phase, Sentintel-2 has already produced more than 200 TB of data, more than 250 trillion pixels, yet the major part […]
Zooniverse created the Planetary Response Network (PRN) to support relief efforts helping crisis victims. Beginning with the Nepal earthquake in 2015, the Zooniverse team knew the PRN would be helpful. The PRN takes satellite data pre-and-post disaster and uses that data to inform ground-based rescue teams where they need to go to be the most […]
