Contributors collect aerial imagery
Imagery is made available online
Developers integrate their apps using the Spexigon API
Imagery from the Spexigon marketplace is pulled into apps for end users
Spexigon will sell access to the imagery collected to organizations in industries where decisions need to be made about real world assets & infrastructure.
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.
Spexigon regards safety as a top priority. There are three main areas where deliberate design decisions have been made to facilitate safe operations:
We'll be releasing more details on our safety protocols soon on our blog and in the forthcoming pilot training program we're developing.
Spexigons are hexagonal zones that overlay the earth 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.
Some example use cases include:
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.)
