Spotted: UK and US-based TCarta Marine is using satellite imagery and machine learning to map the ocean floor from space. TCarta uses sophisticated algorithms to capture depth and detail from satellite images of the ocean. The process is called satellite derived bathymetry (SDB). The algorithms base calculations on the spectrums of light that are captured by sensors on satellites in space. These sensors collect specific wavelengths of energy as it is reflected off a surface. The computer determines the depth of the ocean by calculating the relationship between the type and volume of energy picked up by the sensor and the depth of…
