About Us

Earth-i is a GeoSpatial Intelligence company using machine learning, artificial intelligence and Earth Observation data to provide timely and rich insights that help businesses, governments and other organisations gain advantage and maximise opportunities.

Earth-i provides advanced analytics using automated interpretation of a range of geospatial Earth Observation data sources including colour imagery, colour video, infra-red and radar, from a range of sources including satellite, drone, aerial and ground based sensors. This data is fused with additional data sources to extract factual understanding and generate predictive insights across a range of markets such as supply chain management, construction, infrastructure, agriculture and defence.

The ubiquitous availability of cloud computing, machine learning and artificial intelligence software means that the benefits of deep insights can now be realised by organisations that have no internal geospatial expertise and no capability to interpret Earth Observation imagery and video in-house. Instead, Earth-i provides our clients with the derived analysis and insights that they need to gain decision advantage.

Meet the Earth-i Team

At Earth-i we pride ourselves on our team, their knowledge, and their varied experience across a number of industries. Each member is dedicated to providing our clients with the best quality data, analytics and insights. As a team Earth-i will become a leading provider of very high-resolution satellite data and analytics.
