Descartes Labs Releases Cloud-Based Geospatial Analytics Platform
Descartes Labs, a New Mexico-based geospatial analytics company has deployed Descartes Labs Platform, calling it the industry’s first-ever cloud-based geospatial analytics platform. The platform provides enterprises with a real-time geospatial data catalog and flexible modeling.
The company says the platform removes barriers to geospatial data science, and opens up possibilities for organizations to add artificial intelligence (AI) as a core competency. The company said the modeling tool can work for industries such as agriculture, energy, sustainability, mining, shipping, financial services, and insurance. Built in Python with native AI, machine learning tools, and petabytes of analysis-ready data, customers can use the platform to develop location-based computer vision and machine learning models on top of curated and custom datasets.
“The Descartes Labs Platform was built to model the physical world. Predictive models empower business leaders to save on costs and implement novel strategies to address climate and sustainability challenges,” Descartes Labs CEO Phil Fraher said. “The Descartes Labs Platform enables teams to rapidly innovate on petabyte-scale data sets and leverage exquisite geospatial data in a matter of hours instead of days or weeks.”
