EOS allows you to execute image processing tasks in the browser

Most of the image analysis tasks that required the Erdas Imagine or ENVI software are now online thanks to EOS Platform (The EOS Platform). This new innovative cloud service started by EOS Data Analytics to GIS professionals an integral solution for search, analysis, storage and visualization of large amounts of geospatial data.

Thanks to EOS Platform you will gain access to an ecosystem of four EOS products that complement each other and provide a powerful set of tools for geospatial analysts.

The data of the images are stored in EOS Storage based on the cloud and are available for image processing or for remote sensing analysis at any time; this can be a raw user file, an image obtained from LandViewer or an output file of EOS Processing.

There are at least two reasons why image processing is the main asset of the platform: the processing of large amounts of data runs online and offers up to 16 workflows with many more on the way soon. In addition, users can obtain the best cartographic characteristics of EOS Vision for the visualization of vector data and, as announced for the future, its analysis.

Agnostic data platform

When it comes to rasterized data, you can work with a variety of satellite and aerial datasets in LandViewer, EOS Processing and EOS Storage. In addition, users can also upload their own GeoTiff, JPEG, 2000 JPEG files and apply the GIS data processing algorithms through the API or from the web interface. EOS Vision is your tool for vectorized data operations with compatibility with multiple formats (ESRI Shapefile, GeoJSON, KML, KMZ).

The complete package for image processing

EOS Processing provides a great experience with its 16 processing workflows, includes popular raster tools (fusion, reprojection, derivation), remote sensing analysis, photogrammetry and patented feature extraction algorithms that can not be found anywhere else. Prepare your data for the imminent LiDAR analysis and 3D modeling as they will be available shortly.

Pre-processing tasks such as cloud detection or radiometric calibration help you to refine the raw data for future analysis: you can correct the images according to the atmospheric effects and obtain the real luminosity or reflectance values ​​of the soil.

Object detection, change detection and classification

The convolutional neural networks, previously constituted by EOS to extract the characteristics of the images, allow you to apply cutting-edge methods to detect objects and track changes from space.

With just a set of multi-temporal images and a change detection workflow, you can track how illegal deforestation progresses over time.

Edge detection can show the exact boundaries of your agricultural land to the last pixel.

It is possible to calculate the parking traffic of the largest shopping centers with the car detection algorithm.

The best of the spectral analysis

 EOS Platform products are compatible with almost all types of remote sensors and the user can choose from a long list of spectral indices to calculate on the fly. In addition to the complete set of vegetation indices (NDVI, ReCI, ARVI, SAVI, AVI, etc.), there are also indices to delineate the characteristics of the landscape (water, snow and ice, NDWI, NDSI), as well as burned areas (NBR). ). The best thing is that you have the freedom to experiment with spectral bands and that you can create custom band combinations that best suit your needs.

Customize and analyze

The simple interface of EOS Processing makes it easy to manage the processing of workflows according to the user's business needs. You can set the parameters for processing and repeatedly use that workflow to automate high-frequency analytic tasks. The next updates will add the feature of creating custom algorithms from the available data processing operations.

Agriculture, forestry, oil and gas and more industries

The tandem of EOS products offers a solution of absolute necessity for individuals, companies and organizations from many sectors.

With vegetation indexes and crop classification characteristics, agronomists can continuously monitor crop conditions to detect plant diseases, pests or droughts. Forestry specialists can assess the damage caused by fires, monitor the state of forests or enforce logging restrictions.

EOS Platform is a great option for regional and urban planning, as it helps users identify land cover classes to generate a vegetation map. In addition, you can make a complete list of urban features such as buildings, roads and other important features in the region.

The platform can undertake disaster management by measuring the extent of flooding or finding the limits of a fire. With regard to oil and gas, it is capable of identifying oil platforms and assessing the environmental impact.

EOS Data Analytics uses cloud-based services to address different verticals with a single platform, with scientifically proven analysis, supports and creates products that could add value to remote sensing data to offer expert level results for your business.
