NEO is a Dutch international earth observation service provider, celebrating its 23rd anniversary. NEO concentrates on solving technological and process challenges in monitoring of geo-objects using earth observation tools. We provide services that create valuable services by sensing the dynamics of our habitat. NEO serves over 200 customers in the Netherlands, within the European Union, in Central and Eastern Europe, as well as in Africa, Asia and Latin America. With its 30 Geo- and EO-specialists in 2019 the company is independent from all providers of imagery, software and other organizations. Our information helps our customers to reduce costs, increase safety, and prevent errors, to comply with regulations and to manage our environment better.

NEO signals changes to agriculture parcels. Monitoring, based on satellite imagery in combination with artificial intelligence, aims to detect changes in the boundaries of the parcels. The service saves time and money because, based on the mutation signalling, parcels can be looked at more specifically to determine the new parcel boundaries. This supports the process of keeping the national LPIS (Land Parcel Identification System) registry up to date. The service that NEO provides is unique: it is the first time that mutation signalling based on earth observation is performed automatically on this scale. In this way the 500.000 parcels in the Netherlands are monitored. Open data from the national satellite data portal in the Netherlands is used.

LCA stands for Land Cover Analysis and is used to provide an up to date, digital overview of what covers the surface of our earth split out into 10 key land cover classes. The LCA is often the first step in many environmental monitoring or site selection processes.

NEO is monitoring trees using satellite data and deep learning methodologies. This service informs people about the status of different trees species in their surrounding/municipality. Trees managed by municipalities can be checked on presence and correct attributes such as tree height.

NEO monitors solar panels throughout the Netherlands using deep learning methods. Solar panels are detected using various resolutions of satellite and aerial imagery. The panels are digitalized by the algorithm and related to 3D-roofs based on the AHN (Dutch national height model) to calculate zenith and azimuth angles. This data, combined with data such as solar power, allows NEO to estimate the power output for each object. Solar panels are also provided with parcel and address information and statistical reports, so customers can easily apply the data and relate it to internal registrations.
