DigiSpace: Geo localized population estimation

DIGINOVE wants to build up a new Internet service, based on free satellite images and data provided by Copernicus.

The goal of the DigiSpace service is to provide a geo localized population estimation, based on:

  • Identifying human-built structures: mainly buildings and houses.
  • Characterizing the structures: skyscrapers, buildings, houses, sparse houses …
  • Estimating the population using these structures: local model will be required.

The DigiSpace service will propose different levels of accuracy:

  • Automatic, using free image satellite (10m per pixel), and all available spectral bands (radar, IR, visible).
  • Expert analysis and better image resolution (< 5m per pixel).
  • High accuracy on demand analysis for specific requirement on a limited area.
