Creating Planet Intelligence
Monitoring all natural resources on Earth in real-time
powered by AI and satellite data
Vegetation Management for Electric Utilities
Overstory helps energy companies to mitigate wildfires and power outages. Improving the safety and reliability of the transmission and distribution system and reducing grid operation cost.
By extracting insights from a high variety of very high spatial and temporal resolution satellite data sources, including multi- and hyperspectral imagery, SAR and video.
By applying AI algorithms specialized in trees and vegetation, predicting grow-in and fall-in risks based on species, growth, weather & climate, and vitality.
By facilitating predictive planning, tracking and verifying trimming cycles by contractors, and timely reports on Vegetation Management KPIs.
Products & features
Based on the vegetation data layers combined with wire zone and border zone, a risk identification is provided. Fall-in risk and grow-in risks are both identified.
Prioritization of the risk areas based on estimated likelihood and potential consequence. Priorities are color coded and can be easily integrated with trimming schedules.
Proximity to power line and wire zone
Verification of trimming
Carbon capture estimation
Overstory uses machine learning to interpret satellite imagery and climate data.
- The fusion of diverse spatial, spectral and temporal resolution allows for real time and predictive insights.
- Algorithms have been trained with high amounts of ground measurements from the Overstory data repository.
- Insights are accessed securely via the Overstory platform, or can be easily integrated into existing tools and utility workflows.
The numbers speak for themselves
Customers & Partners
“We were very impressed with Overstory’s forest health monitoring dashboard and believe it has strong growth potential, as they already have an established knowledge of the market and have been exploring possibilities with existing customers.”
Agnieszka Lukaszczyk, Senior Director of European Affairs at Planet
“We can now leverage satellite imagery and AI to understand the characteristics of forests, and make sound decisions when harvesting wood. All thanks to the collaboration with Overstory.”
