Both financial and technological benefits are derived from the partnership between the 2 geospatial data firms. Through the cloudeo marketplace, ConstellR’s high-resolution thermal infrared data is going to be made available to cloudeo’s broad network of the geospatial partners, allowing the clients in the agriculture, oil & gas, as well as maritime markets to take advantage of latest, value-adding data layers with higher accuracy and spatial resolution.
Cloudeo will be able to improve its Geo-Insurance offering, which is an automated solution that provides insurance companies with crop health information. Cloudeo’s crop damage tracking and day-to-day farm management services, which include drought monitoring, heatwave or frost damage identification, and cost-effective irrigation insights, will benefit from ConstellR’s worldwide temperature monitoring solutions and strong data science skills. Cloudeo’s crop type categorization deep learning pipeline is predicted to perform better as well.
ConstellR, established in Germany, is a leader in the utilization of space-centered thermal infrared imagery for the crop health monitoring, high-precision agriculture, and long-term resource management. The organization employs evapotranspiration as a primary metric of crop water need, with surface temperature as the main indicator; it’s important for irrigation, yield monitoring, as well as enhancement. ConstellR’s data, unlike all other satellite-based crop monitoring approaches, allows farmers to reduce prospective crop losses well before irreversible damage happens. In February 2022, their first system will be launched into orbit.
Cloudeo is the world’s premier geospatial market platform, providing easy access to high-quality, data that is ready-to-use and also software application services and consultancy from industry leaders across the world. In addition, cloudeo has created Geo-Insurance, which is an online and fully automated platform aimed at providing crop-related insights to insurance firms and farmers. Geo-Insurance assists clients in estimating risk, fraud detection, portfolio exposure, and claim inspection prioritizing, all while catering to their specific needs. The headquarters of cloudeo are in Munich, Germany. cloudeo recently boosted its presence in Athens, Greece, with the establishment of a new affiliate (cloudeo Hellas).
cloudeo will use its significant knowledge and heritage in Earth Observation business to give geospatial community an easy access to – as well as publicity for – ConstellR’s data, enhancing its partner product line with unique high resolution as well as temperature accuracy data layers. Depending on their interest in the thermal data, geoanalytics organizations in the agriculture, oil & gas, public (governmental), as well as maritime markets are the key target customer groups. In addition, cloudeo will promote ConstellR’s data through its geospatial partner network, allowing it to be integrated into new and current geospatial applications.
“The frequent acquisition (12 hours) and also the high spatial resolution (stronger than 50m) make ConstellR’s temperature item a huge added-value component to cloudeo’s Geo-Insurance item: more accurate insights for crop water stress will be delivered to end-users, as well as more timely information regarding crop’s health and sustainability,” said cloudeo CEO Dr. Manfred Krischke.
