The challenge

BlackShore's system enables us to quickly and thoroughly analyse satellite- or aerial imagery by using real participants as “data-analysts”. They learn about the topic they are studying while having a good time by playing the serious computer game Cerberus.

The solution

All we do is adding value to satellite imagery by mapping faster, more- thorough, cheaper and just as precice as experts!
