Use case spotlight

Manage Autonomous and Manned Air Traffic

Access high-resolution elevation models

Stream NextMap One or WorldDEM digital elevation models from Intermap and Airbus, respectively, to visualize and understand the landscape of your areas of interest.

Analyze DEMs with Intermap Viewshed

Process your digital surface model through Intermap's Viewshed model to understand all the areas from a given height at your point of interest that have a clear line of sight.

Understand terrain, evaluate line-of-sight

Integrate the digital surface model data and viewshed outputs into autonomous aircraft models to provide an understanding of obstacles and insights into the fastest routes with a clear line-of-sight.

Use case spotlight

Measure Air Quality Using Satellite Data

Open data from Sentinel-5P

Sentinel-5P, a Copernicus satellite, conducts atmospheric monitoring worldwide. This data in UP42 is preprocessed to convert it to Level 3, making it possible to measure the SO2 concentration.

Monitor sulphur dioxide

The daily average of SO2, a harmful particulate, can be accessed directly and plotted using the UP42 Time Series Image Statistics processing block.

Combine with weather data

The outputs of your time series can be combined with Meteomatics weather data, which has a number of measurements of atmospheric particulates to augment your analysis.

Use case spotlight

High-resolution satellite imagery

Access a vast library of archive Pleiades imagery and task a satellite at regular intervals, guaranteeing high-quality capture at a low cloud coverage.

Detect objects, such as aircrafts

Use Aircraft Detection from Orbital Insights or a host of other object detection algorithms for buildings and vehicles, in order to monitor airport activity.

Monitor changes and spot trends

Use the UP42 Count Ojects block to turn your detected objects into a time-series data set, enabling you to make predictions and detect anomalies.
