SolSpec was founded in 2016 under a vision to improve environmental and public safety and to increase efficiencies for the energy industry. Co-founder Toby Kraft says he was “driven to make data actionable, to answer questions that solve real-life industry problems effectively and efficiently.” SolSpec’s platform services the widespread use of aerial imagery, and while drones and other aerial data acquisition tools are an important part of the process, at SolSpec they’re one tool on the belt. SolSpec’s easy-to-interpret models show where vulnerabilities to environmental hazards like slips and erosion exist, where contractors might have missed the mark with revegetation, erosion control, and more. Our experts give extensive support and walk clients through how the data can be utilized to best meet the company’s specific needs. Our data processing is extremely fast: SolSpec has reduced the time it takes to process and deliver aerial data into the hands of clients from 4 months to 72 hours.
