Object Detection

Detecting objects is fundamental to using satellite images. Counting vehicles may look hard, but we make it easy.

Infrared Image Enhancement

Infrared light exposes information that's usually hidden from view. We dramatically boost the resolution of near infrared images, so that you can see the details.


Image Colorization

A common challenge in satellite imagery is pan sharpening - combining high resolution grey scale images with lower resolution color images to produce high resolution color images.  We approach this problem by first analyzing the semantic content of an image and then reimagining that image as if though it was taken with a better camera.

The results are stunning.  Our AI understands lines and other image structures, which allows it to "color inside the lines" better than competing solutions.  Our systems also understand natural structures, such as trees and the ground.  Since we color base on semantics, we can correct for subtle errors cause by imaging through the atmosphere, resulting in near photographic quality color images. 

Enhancing Resolution

Since we operate at the semantic level, we can take a grey scale image, and guided by the low resolution color information, re-imagine the image at a higher resolution. In the example here, a single color pixel is replace by 64 new color pixels. The re-imagined images are surprisely accurate — we know because we test using high resolution imagery to verify our results. 

 

Object Detection

Want to count the percentage of pine trees in a forest?  How about cars in a rental car parking lot?  FeatureX's semantic object recognition algorithms provide you with unmatched tools to recognize small objects in satellite images.  We can accurately identify objects as small as 5x5 pixels, or about 4 feet by 4 feet in the high resolution images below. 

 

Infrared Image Enhancement

Our ability to enhance images doesn’t stop with the visible spectrum.  For example, near infrared can pull out details in images to facilitate tasks such as measurement of ground cover.
