Intel today quietly launched Intel Geospatial, a cloud platform that features data engineering solutions, 3D visualizations, and basic analytics tools for geovisual workloads. Intel says it is designed to provide access to 2D and 3D geospatial data and apps through an ecosystem of partners, addressing use cases like vegetation management, fire risk assessment and inspection, and more.
The geospatial analytics market is large and growing, with a recent Markets and Markets report estimating it will be worth $96.34 billion by 2025. Geospatial imagery can help companies manage assets, like network assets prone to damage during powerful storms. Moreover, satellite imagery and the AI algorithms trained to analyze it have applications in weather prediction, defense, transportation, insurance, and even health care, mainly because of their ability to capture and model environments over extended periods of time.
