Automation to enhance feature extraction, change detection on the UP42 platform.

UP42, a geospatial developer platform and marketplace, is collaborating with Trimble to offer automated Trimble eCognition software object-based image analysis and change detection solution.

The object-based image analysis technology within Trimble eCognition dramatically enhances the accuracy and quality of information extracted from geospatial data. This enables eCognition developers to become UP42 partners, create enriched processing capabilities, and commercialize their algorithms on the UP42 marketplace.

These extensive capabilities allow UP42 partners to extract accurate geospatial information for a wide range of applications, from forestry and land cover sustainability mapping to utility transmission vegetation management and temporal analysis.

“Collaborating with Trimble is a win-win scenario for UP42 and eCognition developers,” said UP42 CEO Sean Wiid. “UP42 partners can leverage eCognition to create automated solutions that extract fully quantified insights from imagery—and then affordably scale them to commercial operations with our cloud infrastructure.”

For current eCognition developers, Wiid explained, “UP42 makes available dozens of machine learning algorithms and a diverse selection of geospatial data on a single platform, where they can be integrated and exploited with flexible workflow capabilities. UP42 encourages these developers to take advantage of a new revenue channel by showcasing their analytics products on our marketplace.”

“The addition of Trimble eCognition to the UP42 platform combines scalable infrastructure, Earth observation data and automated extraction technology to quickly transform data into valued information," said Tim Lemmon, Marketing Director for Trimble Geospatial.
