Simularity, Mothership Aeronautics partner to offer persistent change detection in spatial resolution

Simularity, a Geospatial AI company, and Mothership Aeronautics, a provider of aerial data collection products and services, recently announced that they have established a partnership that combines Simularity’s automated persistent change detection and classification with Mothership’s aerial geo-coded imagery collection services.

Simularity and Mothership are working together on a monitoring service for local governments. Mothership specializes in designing unmanned aircraft data collection missions that can capture ultra-high-resolution imagery of cities and provinces. Simularity’s automated imagery analysis software can detect persistent changes, such as illegal dumping, using the imagery collected by Mothership.

The high-resolution imagery leads to exceptional accuracy in detecting problems local governments face, helping them locate issues while the problems are still of manageable size. Liz Derr, CEO of Simularity said that their technology combined with data collection advantages of Mothership Aeronautics provides their customers with a solution that gives the level of detail and accuracy that local governments need to monitor their areas.

Many of the issues of concern to local governments, such as blight, encroachment, illegal construction, and polluting, are difficult to spot with the image resolution available from satellites. Jonathan Nutzati, CEO of Mothership Aeronautics said that the level of detail they can provide with their image collection is stunning, but it’s a lot of information for geospatial analysts to process.

He added that using Simularity’s automated software to process those images gives local administrators the knowledge they need to make timely and informed decisions.
