Connecting People with Earth-Observing Data
We want people in the United States and around the world to use Earth observations — to find innovative solutions and solve local challenges. But finding the data you need and knowing how to use it isn’t always easy.
That’s why our team brings unparalleled enthusiasm and deep expertise from our three skill-building elements — ARSET, SERVIR and DEVELOP — and our indigenous peoples pilot to support anyone who is interested in learning about Earth observations and remote sensing technologies. Regardless of previous knowledge or experience, our team is here to help you.
We partner with organizations like the National Park Service, Virginia's City of Hampton, the World Food Programme, the international Group on Earth Observations (GEO) and many others to make sure we connect with anyone interested in incorporating Earth observations into their work. Together, we empower people to make an impact in their communities and around the world.
