OUR TEAM AND CULTURE

Spexi Geospatial Inc., the company behind Spexigon, got its start in 2017.  We began by building a SaaS platform to enable organizations to collect drone imagery using their own drones and pilots.

Now with Spexigon, our mission is to democratize access to high resolution Earth imagery.

By enabling drone pilots to easily contribute imagery from wherever they are, it is our hope that we can power better and more informed decision making by organizations world wide.

BUILD WITH SPEXIGON

Are you a developer with existing apps that could use our imagery? Want to build something new on Spexigon?
Let’s talk

Faq

What is the Data Used For?

Some example use cases include:

  • Insurance underwriting
  • Construction project management
  • Residential real estate imagery
  • Infrastructure and building inspections
  • Wildfire prevention (forestry imaging + computer vision and A.I)
  • Natural resource management
  • Building inspections
  • City management and planning

And the list goes on… At the end of the day, the high resolution imagery pilots collect with drones will be used by data buyers to make better decisions about real world physical assets. With better, more frequently refreshed data, people and organizations will be able to save time and money and reduce their impact on the environment (less need to drive to a job site for example if you can simply view the site online and inspect it remotely.)

When can I start flying?

In Q3 of 2023 pilots will be able to begin flying in some parts of Canada. We'll be working to open up additional areas as soon as we can from there. See our documentation for more details on our current launch plan.

Do I need any training?

All pilots are responsible for ensuring they follow their local rules and regulations regarding drone pilot certificates, insurance, etc.  Many jurisdictions around the world do not require drone pilot certificates/licenses for drones which weigh under 250g, however some do.

Other more localized rules and bylaws exist that pilots should familiarize themselves with before commencing flights in their regions.

All pilots who choose to fly on Spexigon will have the opportunity to undertake free training online which highlights best practices for safe flight, efficient data collection, and Spexigon platform functionality.

What drone’s are compatible?

Spexigon will initially be standardizing on the sub-250g class of drone, specifically the DJI Mini 2, Mini 3, and Mini 3 PRO to start. In time, additional drone models will be approved to work on the platform.

How much can I earn?

When the testnet launches, pilots will be able to earn Reputation Points and Cash for collecting & uploading imagery to the platform. In time, points will be capable of being used on the platform for a variety of purposes.

Once the platform moves to mainnet, it is intended that users will continue to earn Reputation Points in addition to also earning SPEXI tokens. It is our intent to distribute SPEXI tokens at some point in the future, pending regulatory approval or clarity.

We hope to reward network contributors in general proportion to their impact and contribution. Reputation Points are intended to play a role in this.

What is a Spexigon and How do They Work?

Spexigons are hexagonal zones that overlay a map of the earth inside the Spexigon app in order to show where imagery needs to be collected.

Each Spexigon contains flight plan information that the drones use (combined with the Spexigon mobile app) to ensure they are flying at the correct height, speed, and location to capture the best imagery possible.

The Spexigon system serves as a method of standardization.  The most challenging aspect of working with high-resolution drone imagery is the capture process.  By standardizing this process, ensuring it is the same everywhere on Earth, and combining it with a crypto-economic incentive model, Spexigon will capture imagery in a similar fashion to how satellites capture imagery from space.

What does Spexigon do with the imagery contributors collect?

Spexigon will sell access to the imagery collected to organizations in industries where decisions need to be made about real world assets & infrastructure.

How do  you ensure people’s privacy is protected?

Spexigon imagery is captured at resolutions which prevent personally identifiable information from being detected.

Spexigon will also adhere to regional privacy standards in regards to treatment of Earth observation imagery.

How do you ensure data is collected safely?

Spexigon regards safety as a top priority.  There are three main areas where deliberate design decisions have been made to facilitate safe operations:

  1. Airspace;
  2. Regulations;
  3. Training.
