Why We Are Measuring Every Building In Australia And How You Can Benefit

More than 15 Million buildings available now!

There have been vast improvements in technologies in recent years with enhancements in satellite imagery, machine learning and big data being only just a few. Together with the latest satellite data release from Geoscape by PSMA, we are now able to capture location based insights for every address in the country including more than 15 million buildings in total! 

By using spatial machine learning it is now possible - for the first time - to get precision 3D data for all buildings structures, trees, pools, solar panels, and landcover across the country*. Here are three great reasons you should be interested in Geospatial data: 

Make Better Business and Urban Planning Decisions

Businesses can use spatial data analytics to make location based decisions before they enter an area. This allows them to plan ahead well into the future by taking into account a multitude of data layers, ranging from demographic to structural changes and detailed location insight. It has never been easier for Urban Planners to create interactive 2D and 3D models of entire cities instantly during the design and decision making phase.

Predict Future Developments and Natural Risks

Available transport, current or future land use and other amenities are mapped and tracked. This allows local councils to efficiently plan and develop cities and towns, so that they can predict future developments and react accordingly using spatial intelligence and compliance technologies.

Property and Home Insurance companies benefit from detailed tracking of structures and vegetation for risk analysis due to natural hazards such as fire, flood, or storm damage. Spatial machine learning adds unprecedented accuracy for these risk predictions as well as physical models to forecast the impact of future climate change for each home in Australia.

Optimise Renewable Energy

Companies in the solar and renewable energy sector can search for homes that are mostly suited for solar installation. Once the best mix of renewable energy is identified for a certain region, businesses can market products to potential customers more efficiently by identifying the homes with the most potential to need their service. Using the data in this way will allow businesses to optimise their marketing efforts and to install renewable energy technology more efficiently.
