Developing smart solutions for measuring floating roof tanks

Business Need

A leading asset and utility intelligence provider, needed to measure floating roof top tanks to provide operational intelligence and actionable business insights to their customers. As input, aerial imagery taken from a flyover of the terminal was provided.


Factoring in technical models and other characteristics, Mobius identified two main components in play - tank identification and tank measurement. A multi-step process flow was designed to provide accurate tank measurements.

  • Matching aerial imagery to Google Earth map files using Genscape-issued individual tank numbers, colors or surroundings
  • Measuring identified tanks using in-house software provided by Genscape
  • Calculating volume of each tank automatically


  • The final output was delivered in ESRI format to client.
