The Orbital Insight website offers a few hints about the data products the start-up company derives from satellite imagery.

A stealthy startup company that analyzes satellite imagery came into the open recently with a high-profile article in The Wall Street Journal. The article featured several companies focused on mining data for investor insight.

Orbital Insight selling its analyses to traders looking for an edge, with several unique satellite imagery data products, including:

•  analysis of the shadows cast on buildings under construction in China to determine the rate of construction and infrastructure investment in that country,
•  parking lot studies of major retailers to predict revenue growth, and
•  detailed analysis of corn crops to help predict yield across the United States.

Orbital Insight acquires satellite images in bulk, reportedly purchasing 1 million images of parking lots from satellite imaging companies that were parsed by the company’s custom-built computer system to provide indicator data for trading companies.

Formed by a former Google engineer, Orbital Insight got its start with seed capital from Citizen VC and hopes to raise as much as $8 million on its next round of fundraising.
