Geo-satellite Intelligence

What can AI and the open world of data bring to your business?

This is the question we ask ourselves in Geo Satellite Intelligence - GSI - which is Sogeti's latest investment in AI. With advanced cognitive image analysis, Machine Learning and Deep Learning, we push the boundaries and challenge business problems that have existed forever.

Geo-satellite Intelligence

What if you knew what it looked like everywhere on Earth? What could you do then? What would it mean for you to get the information updated every week? What if cloudy days do not affect the image quality?

GSI is based on open data from ESA (European Space Agency) where satellite images of various kinds are provided through the Copernicus program. By analyzing the broad spectrum of images available, industries such as transport, energy, forestry, insurance, and many more, are given new opportunities to streamline their core processes.

Sogeti Sweden leverage AI to hunt spruce bark beetles


Client challenge

Large forestry areas are destroyed every year by spruce bark beetles. According to the national authority, Swedish Forest Agency, 3–4 million cubic meters of forests in Sweden were destroyed in 2018. Sveaskog, the largest forest owner in Sweden, owning 14% of Swedish forests, approached Sogeti for a monitoring solution.


How we made value

Sogeti's Geo Satellite Intelligence (GSI) uses advanced cognitive image analysis, Machine Learning and Deep Learning and is based on open data from the European Space Agency (ESA). Sogeti adapted GSI to the forestry sector’s spruce bark beetle issue and, by using satellite images, enables Sveaskog to monitor the whole of Sweden and enable quick management of affected trees.


Sogeti impact

Sogeti's Geo Satellite Intelligence (GSI) has been able to point out areas in the forest that are currently under attack and successively point out newly affected areas.

Sveaskog can now swiftly manage the affected forest areas and reduce the spreading of the spruce bark beetle.
