Nishan’s CEO also explained about the technical challenges and complexity of providing this feature:
In this project, we had to process a large amount of raw images in several steps. At first, these steps seemed clear and simple, but in the middle of the way, some unforeseen complications were created, and in several cases, we had to review the entire process and reprocess the images.
