One of TerraSeer's products "ChronoSeer" will enable geographers to visualize change detection, in time and space, using remotely sensed data and information."SpatialSeer" is a suite of statistical software to reveal spatial patterns often missed by standard statistical methods.Proprietary data structures have been created to run with their own statistics.However, each of their products provides access to commonly available GIS formats such as Shapefiles or MapInfo tables.
"Techniques don't care what the data are!" said Mr.Jacquez, "Our approach seeks to establish that 'where' and 'when' have an impact of the 'why' of events."
TerraSeer's exclusive R&D partner, BioMedware, a successful scientific software development firm, developed the TerraSeer Environmental Insight software.Much of TerraSeer's work has been conducted in the fields of epidemiology and boundary delineation of wildlife habitats.According to product literature, "BoundarySeer," identifies spatial patterns, then assesses the probability that those patterns occur by chance.
More information about TerraSeer can be found in a white paper that the company has authored, and in a special issue of the Journal of Geographical Systems edited by Geoffrey Jacquez, Andrew Marcus and Richard Aspinall, which is slated for a March release.The issue focuses on the use of spatially explicit analysis methods with remotely sensed data.
