Browsing large sets of satellite imagery
We’re working on new interface designs to make imagery easy to browse and download for the commercial industry — from agriculture to insurance. This imagery browser is first going to be our internal QA tool. The browser lets us look at imagery steaming in; both from our own 2.5 meter resolution imagery captured by our constellation in addition to third party imagery from our parters. This not only helps our internal operations, but lets us dog food our API and work flow before we open it up to the public.
We’re building out both our API and the browser with the remote sensing experts at Development Seed, who design beautiful work flows for complex applications like this. Here is an early peak at some of the design considerations we are trying to solve:
