Simularity and Spacemetric Team to Improve Anomaly Detection

As the geospatial industry learns to handle ever increasing volumes and resolutions of imagery, including drone data and video, customers are demanding more effective ways to extract valuable insights from their data. The challenge with large volumes of imagery is distinguishing interesting and unusual change from “normal” change and avoiding spurious results from poor input data.

Two software companies with unique technologies have discovered that their offerings are the perfect match to solving this problem. Combining Spacemetric’s Keystone technology to supply high-accuracy imagery to Simularity’s recently announced Automatic Image Anomaly Detection System (AI-ADS), presents an exciting way for customers to have true “tip and cue” intel from their images.

Spacemetric and Simularity are partnering to explore solutions such as:

  •      Reducing crime by spotting illegal or unwanted activity in remote areas
  •      Increasing civilian and military defense by finding evidence of potential IED’s along roads and pathways, before they cause harm
  •      Increasing municipal revenues and license fees from unpermitted construction when the land is first being cleared
  •      Uncovering potential threats to national security close to borders, by alerting nearby officials of strange occurrences

Spacemetric’s Keystone platform provide accurately geo-located images to the Simularity AI-ADS, which generates alerts which can be used to quickly pinpoint which anomalies are most critical to investigate further.

“Until now, it’s been a real challenge for us to have properly aligned images in order for our AI to learn what’s normal on the ground, and then to be able to detect when something significant has happened in an area of interest. Using Spacemetric’s Keystone platform, not only can our customers get faster and more accurate anomaly predictions, but the broad range of image sources including drones and video, makes this a game changer” – Liz Derr, CEO, Simularity Inc.
