Picterra was created in 2016 by Frank de Morsier and Pierrick Poulenas in Lausanne, Switzerland. Unlike many competitors, the vision of Picterra is to make the exploitation and use of Earth observation imagery accessible to all, not just data scientists and developers, as this is one of the key resources of our century. Picterra is an AI-based SaaS platform which allows to interactively create a personalized AI detecting, localizing and counting any objects from satellite and aerial imagery, all in just a few clicks. Above all, Picterra is a community of users who pool their expertise and their vision of the world to collectively create a common library of detection capabilities. Picterra’s goal is to democratize the access to Earth observation and machine learning and eventually provide a new source of information to help Humanity make better-informed decisions to protect our global ecosystem.
