Thanks to Soar, anybody on the planet may now watch high-definition aerial photographs of any location at any time.
2019 – October 25th At 10 meters per pixel, the satellite imagery firm Soar has announced it is allowing the public to access its satellites, which deliver near-real-time imagery across the globe.
With the advent of high-definition aerial photography, the general public and the media will be able to follow events as they unfold from a bird's eye perspective. Wildfires, tsunamis, hurricanes, and drought are all examples of environmental disasters. Protests in Hong Kong or unlawful mining or deforestation can also be monitored by governments.
For this map, professionals in geospatial technology used data gathered by satellite photos from the European Space Agency's Sentinel and NASA's Landsat, and the SuperView and Gaofen spacecraft.
Along with imagery from satellites, the super-map will also include imagery from drone owners (drone pilots) all around the world, who will be able to receive passive income as the value of their imagery is appreciated. As a result, we're able to collect, distribute, and monetize mapping imagery from a variety of sensors under one roof.
80% of all mapping imagery is now only accessible through a single channel, with most of it designated for commercial usage only, according to Soar's CEO and creator, Amir Farhad. Frequently, the general public is restricted to resources that are just marginally more up-to-date. By generating dynamic, constantly changing data on our platform, Soar can overcome these limits.
Uploaded to social media, a drone user's images can garner a few likes, or they can languish on a hard drive. To seed the super-map with content, a pilot can upload an image to Soar and earn money while simultaneously adding value to the global community.
"Imagine if we could re-use that material in a way that was completely authentic, collaborative, and most importantly, accessible to all," said Tim Glover, Soar's Head of Growth. With Soar, anyone may see environmental changes such as droughts and melting ice caps from a new perspective. Other possibilities include monitoring natural disasters such as volcano eruptions. With the help of Soar, everyone may explore the ever-changing world around us."
Even though they've already collected approximately 10 petabytes of data, Soar's growth goal includes more photography. Several international corporations with excess satellite, aerial, and drone content have already requested partnerships with Soar. More high-resolution data streams from satellites, aerial photography providers, and drone operators around the world are expected to be added to the platform soon.
Taking a picture of yourself used to necessitate the use of various tools and equipment, but times have changed. Thanks to technological advances, you may now take your photos and films and do it quickly and easily. Using video editing software, you can even modify your videos while generating them.
There are numerous uses for Soar across a variety of industries and applications, including agricultural and environmental management; logistics; mining; and insurance. As users from all across the world upload images from recent landscape events, the news and social media platforms have seen the most increase since the app's test launch in late 2018.
