Demonstrating the Art of the Possible
We pioneer the use of remote sensing and big data for investigating and communicating environmental issues.
We conduct R&D to keep up with rapid advances in satellite imaging, data collection, data mining, cloud computing, and machine learning. We communicate and partner with environmental NGOs and academic researchers, to learn about emerging environmental issues and the science, strategies and campaigns that are developing in response to those concerns. And we synthesize this knowledge to bend our technical expertise toward measuring, mapping and illuminating environmental issues in ways that inform and engage researchers, regulators, policymakers, journalists and the public. By demonstrating applications that are not only technically possible, but are also operationally feasible, we reveal new possibilities for more effective government policy and oversight, and set a higher bar of performance for government regulators and industry.
