SkyFi Insights Has Answers…
Through our partnership with Impact Observatory, SkyFi Insights provides quick answers to questions like the one above.
SkyFi Insights can leverage historical imagery from open data sources and commercial data, providing a before-and-after analysis of our planet's transformations. For instance, questions like "How will our Earth change over time?" can now be addressed with precision. Impact Observatory's Role in Unveiling Earth's Transformations Impact Observatory is a mission-driven technology company that utilizes artificial intelligence and machine learning algorithms to help understand climate change and assess risks to natural places and communities. One of Impact Observatory's products on SkyFi Insights is a 14-class Land Use Map Bundle.
These maps identify dense forest and open woodlands, wet and dry areas, riparian areas, and high and low density urban areas, as well as permanent and seasonal snow and ice, using satellite imagery as soon as it becomes available.
For Liv's question, the map focused on water and snow/ice changes in the Antarctic Peninsula for the years 2020, 2021, and 2022. By analyzing the shift between snow/ice and water, the Impact Observatory maps revealed a clear pattern of melting ice due to global warming.
The Power of 14 Class Land Use Cover Maps The versatility of 14-class land use cover maps opens up numerous use cases. These maps provide critical understanding of the current status, trends, and threats to human infrastructure, food and water security, and other natural resources that impact national security. As climate change alters the pattern of rainfall and snow pack, and as storms erode coastlines and flood low-lying communities, it is critical to provide the most timely and accurate monitoring of the communities, infrastructure, and natural resources affected. From tracking environmental changes and biodiversity loss to monitoring farming practices and planning for sustainable livelihoods, the potential applications are vast. Partnering for a Brighter Future SkyFi's collaboration with Impact Observatory enables the unlocking of new customer segments. By offering quick answers to land use-related queries, SkyFi bridges the gap between technology complexity and the needs of everyday people. Together, they empower decision-makers with the data and AI tools necessary to drive positive changes for the environment and society.
With SkyFi Insights, Earth observation data is becoming more accessible and easy-to-understand for all users. No longer confined to experts or industry jargon, SkyFi Insights brings clarity to the complexity of our world's changes. So, whether you're planning a camping trip, assessing property values, or monitoring climate shifts, SkyFi Insights is your portal to effortlessly capture a view of Earth's transformations.
