Super resolution back in the game

The Living Planet Symposium (LPS22), organized by ESA this year was held in Bonn, Germany. The buzz of this massive gathering of Earth Observation (EO) experts — from commercial to scientific communities — was instantly invigorating. The synergy of collective intelligence was palpable. Scientists from all over the world came together to discuss and share the latest research & innovations in remote sensing for sustainability. No topic remained untouched: from permafrost melting, glaciers retreating, ecosystem restoration, coastal and blue carbon sequestration to human sustainability.

All of these workstreams are impacted — in one way or the other — by the resolution of satellite images. It is a telltale sign that an entire afternoon was dedicated to the presentation and demonstration of various super resolution (SR) methodologies & applications. SR is still a hot topic within multiple work streams of the EO community, as was demonstrated by the ample attention our neural-network-powered-SR in1 life demo drew.

During the super resolution demonstration, keen interest was expressed through numerous questions & feedback. This begs the question: “How can Sobolt continue to develop this service?” Based on our experiences and the validated product-market fit, it is clear that in1 can be successfully developed further in a strong partnership with either a data provider or end-user. Why? They’re able to bring specific use cases for object detection, agriculture and environmental monitoring, to name a few.
