The technical details
How can you use UP42 to build portfolio risk analysis solutions?
High-quality satellite imagery
Access a vast archive of high-resolution Pleiades imagery, paying only for the data within your area of interest. Build up a set of archive images at regular intervals in order to run analysis where you can track changes over time. To ensure your analysis is as up to date as possible, you can commission the Pleiades constellation for a specific date range, with a guaranteed maximum cloud coverage.
Detect objects in your imagery
Analyze your Pleiades imagery by running them through a range of detection algorithms that detect objects, which are indicators of changing values or market dynamics. Process the output of detection algorithms with the UP42 Count Objects block that provides a single output of the number of objects detected by the algorithm.
Assign value and plot over time
Estimate the value provided by different objects within the satellite image and combine the different detection algorithms and Count Objects block outputs to give each area of interest an overall value indicator. Place this value indicator in a time series data set to identify AOIs where value growth or loss occurs.
Automate your analysis
Build and automate analytics workflows leveraging UP42's infrastructure but working in Jupyter Notebooks or other command-line tools. With our Python SDK, you can access all the functionality of the UP42 platform within the command line, enabling UP42 to work seamlessly within your existing processes, interacting with your regular analytics workflows, tools, and libraries.
