Advances in technology for observing the earth from space have resulted in the formation of a new company which will bring a range of satellite intelligence and data services to market. 4 Earth Intelligence (4EI) has pioneered the use of satellite data for smart monitoring and analysis creating city, region, and countrywide data solutions for applications such as air quality, asset management, ecology and urban heat monitoring.
With offices in Bristol, UK and in Abu Dhabi, UAE, 4 Earth Intelligence has been established to focus on new sectors and technical innovations using machine learning and Artificial Intelligence to provide smart data — in particular for global environmental applications.
With several flagship projects already completed around the world, the company has set a new course. Projects to date have included the development of a new global air quality index, the creation of multiple iterations of the satellite environmental inventory of Abu Dhabi, data fusion techniques for detecting soil quality, and climate resilience analysis for Local Authorities in the UK.
Using consistent and repeatable spatial data derived from satellites, 4 Earth Intelligence can provide insight about a wide range of measurable impacts using a variety of data analysis techniques and show change at very regular intervals. The company will work collaboratively with commercial companies, agencies and governments to help improve decision making.
