Efficiency gains for imagery and geospatial production and analysis can be achieved in a number of ways – only one of which is by inserting automation. Observera delivers broad-based analysis of workflow efficiency using our scientific, analytical and technical understanding of geospatial processes. We believe that workflow optimization must start with a thorough understanding of the current and desired concepts of operations and end results. Working forward, we identify how source data and information; procedures and collaboration; products, tools and processing techniques; and finally automation can be applied to the greatest effect. Our knowledge and experience with all of these areas allows us to identify opportunities for improvement and help our customers streamline and integrate their geospatial workflows.
