Rely on data rather than hearsay to analyze market fundamentals
The Supply Tracker relies on high-resolution optical imagery taken a few seconds apart to create stereo images of stockpiles.

Newcastle Coal Terminal
Kayrros mapped the Newcastle coal facility and segmented the different stockyards before creating 3D models of every stockpile using satellite imagery and proprietary computer vision models. The time series of the 3D models was converted into a single time series expressed in tons of coal. The ability to compare current inventory levels with historical averages at one of the largest export terminals in the world is crucial to the fundamental analysis of the global coal market.
