Monitoring Land Cover Changes at the Bushland-Urban Interface: An Image Analysis Approach

August 11th, 2020|AI, Australia, Bushfire, Climate Change, Cloud Computing, Earth Observation, Emergency, Exposure, Geocoding, Geospatial Big Data Analytics, Image Analysis, Land parcel, Location Intelligence, Property Information, Risk, Sentinel-2|

It has been well observed, modelled and reported that bushfire risk is on the rise under a rapidly warming climate. Earth observation, remote sensing and image analysis are among the most important technologies to manage bushfires nowadays - from disaster prevention to preparedness, from hotspots detection to movement monitoring, from response to [...]

BigData Earth Develops New Location Profile Report for Worldwide Agricultural Land

December 5th, 2016|Agriculture, Asia, Asset Management, Australia, Climate Change, Cloud Computing, Earth Observation, Flood, Geospatial Big Data Analytics, Image Analysis, Location Intelligence, Property Information, USA|

Modern Earth observation technologies (spaceborne, airborne and terrestrial) are increasingly deployed to capture environmental attributes about agricultural land and assets. Geospatial big data collected by various sensors and the information extracted are critical for the growing AgTech and digital agriculture business. Many baseline terrain and environmental metrics for agricultural land should be [...]

BigData Earth Develops New-generation Property Location Information for Addresses in the U.S. and Australia

November 3rd, 2016|Asset Management, Australia, Climate Change, Earth Observation, Elevation, Location Intelligence, Property Information, Real Estate, Risk, USA|

3 November 2016 For industries such as asset management, real estate and insurance underwriting, the location information of assets (e.g. buildings, infrastructure facilities, and agricultural land) is among the most important. Through deep research and development, BigData Earth creates new-generation property location metrics and insights by integrating various thematic layers (including terrain, land cover, climate change, natural [...]

Location Profile Reports on Climate Warming Trends

November 3rd, 2016|Australia, Climate Change, Property Information|

As part of new asset / property location information, we are making reports on location-specific climate warming trend. It is based on the analysis of the new NASA Earth Exchange Global Daily Downscaled Projections dataset (NEX-GDDP, 2015), which is derived from the runs of 21 advanced Global Climate Models under two greenhouse gas emissions scenarios [...]

The Warming Trend across Australia in 2100

March 5th, 2016|Australia, Climate Change|

Statements on the warming climate are supported by two main research approaches: observation and modelling. Observation: It has long been diagnosed that the Earth has a fever, and some latest measurements and facts are alarming: 2015 was the hottest on record globally; January 2016 was the hottest month on record globally (link); February 2016 had record warmth in [...]
