Catchment Analytics provides advanced image data solutions that streamline the collection, processing, analysis and interpretation of large, in-field image datasets collected via remote cameras and/or drones.

Our automated and ‘intelligent’ systems have been tailored to support the management of recreational activities in public open spaces – with a focus on drinking water supply reservoirs and surrounding catchment areas.

We utilise specialised image recognition software, in conjunction with 4G telecommunications, image file database management and metadata protocols, and decision support functionality to identify and report on patterns of behaviors, anomalies and risks – in near real time.

Our image recognition software scans incoming digital images to identify key ‘target objects’ and catalogue these in the database. The software has been ‘trained’ on over 300,000 photographs to date, giving it the capacity to recognise some 80 unique ‘target objects’ (including people, bikes, boats, kayaks …even dogs).
