LandViewer Now Features Change Detection that Runs in Browser

The major utilization of remote sensing data has been to compare images of an area taken at different times and identify the changes it underwent. With a wealth of long-term satellite imagery currently in open use, detecting such changes manually would be time-consuming and most likely inaccurate. EOS Data Analytics has now introduced the automated Change Detection tool to its flagship product LandViewer – a cloud-based tool for satellite imagery search and analysis. Unlike the methods involving neural networks that identify changes in the previously extracted features, the change detection algorithm implemented by EOS is using a pixel-based strategy, meaning...
