CAPE Analytics Offers Geospatial Property Information For Mars in First Interplanetary Expansion

Jezero Crater, Mars —  Today, CAPE Analytics, the solar system’s leader in AI-powered property intelligence, is pleased to announce its expansion to Mars. With NASA’s Perseverance mission underway and the imminent launch of its groundbreaking Ingenuity helicopter, CAPE has received tremendous demand to offer its geospatial analytics for locations on Mars. Now, insurers and real estate investors can confidently expand their property portfolio to Mars with the most recent and accurate Martian property information available. 

CAPE’s first property survey of the Martian environment was powered by photos taken from terrestrial, amateur telescopes. Imagery in hand, CAPE now covers 100% of the properties on Mars, totaling five rovers and zero inhabited structures. Of note, there is a very low preponderance of pools (zero, actually), but 100% penetration of installed solar panels. CAPE’s computer vision also detected a number of ruins, likely constructed by past civilizations, all of which have severe condition roofs. 

CAPE’s highly accurate algorithms were trained on specific areas of interest to mimic the Martian landscape, including Red Rocks, Colorado, Namibia’s Skeleton Coast, and Námaskarð, Iceland. Information derived from these algorithms can be transmitted from Mars in as little as 15 minutes. 

“We’re very pleased to expand our footprint to Mars,” said CAPE’s head of Martian business development, Brad Raybury. “Although we’re launching with a subset of our typical property attributes, we’re hard at work on additional features, such as rock debris, gullies, glaciers and volcanoes—and of course, water. Exploring Mars may be tough, but estimating the risk of either underwriting or buying a property on Mars shouldn’t be rocket science.” 

Always working to expand its coverage, CAPE is planning to augment its geospatial offering for Earth and Mars with additional intergalactic offerings, including planets, moons, and asteroids in the next few years. “Mars is just the beginning,” said Raybury.
