Global Surface Intelligence (GSi)

Global Surface Intelligence (GSi) is a data-mining company focusing primarily on turning raw earth observation data into commercially useful information about the environment. GSi has developed a very powerful software platform called the "GSi-Platform" which provides high performance, big data, predictive analytics of satellite, remote sensing and other data.

Its predictive analytics are based on highly accurate machine-learning software, which was specially engineered to handle big data sets and to run on high-performance supercomputers.

Currently, GSi captures earth observation data from satellite covering the earth's surface every eight days and has historical data all the way back from 2001. GSi processes, filters and analyses hundreds of thousands of satellite images to allow for an on-going global big data time-series analysis.

This allows GSi to develop commercially-focused environmental databases over time. GSi uses machine learning and predictive analytics to help make better predictions based on existing empirical data. It provides clients with highly accurate results for year on year analyses that are used to solve real business problems in new ways.

Big Data Remote Sensing Earth Observations

GSi sells subscription-based access to off-the-shelf environmental databases and offers consultancy to develop new bespoke databases derived from big data remote sensing earth observations that are currently beyond the state of the art and science.

The GSi-Platform sits on the Edinburgh Parallel Computing Centre at the University of Edinburgh, which house some of the largest supercomputers in the world and can enable GSi's software to process big data sets by running on over of 300k individual processors.

GSi then leverages these computing resources with our special high performance machine learning predictive analytical software to develop new maps and geospatial information specifically designed to enhance predictive accuracy, reduce cost and enable better management of natural resources from earth observations.
