Catalyst and Amazon Web Services collaboration delivers displacement monitoring insights
Information from Catalyst Earth
Catalyst, a PCI Geomatics brand, is collaborating with Amazon Web Services (AWS) to make satellite-based earth observation intelligence accessible to the mainstream business community via AWS Cloud. The collaboration will deliver geoscience analytics to users with any level of technical expertise.
The company’s initial solution, available through AWS Data Exchange, is an infrastructure risk assessment service that uses satellite data to continuously monitor millimetre-level ground displacement over a subscriber’s area of interest anywhere on Earth. Catalyst is exploring additional risk mitigation solutions and monitoring services using the cloud service provider.
The solution is useful for applications including infrastructure monitoring, property and casualty insurance, and mining. It allows for the monitoring of critical infrastructure, can reveal trends and help improve project planning, and offers millimetre-level accuracy.
