With the many challenges facing our planet â€” societal, economic, environmental, and more â€” weâ€™re all the more eager to open the UrtheCast Developer Platform, which is now released publicly to provide tools for world change.
By opening up its API, UrtheCast makes it possible for Global Forest Watch (GFW) to incorporate high-resolution UrtheCast imagery into the GFW monitoring platform, allowing you to study changes in the world's forests.
On Feb.11, UrtheCast's Catherine Burton will be a panelist speaking on â€˜Big Data from Space: Gaining Insights and Intelligence on Earthâ€™ at IoT Data Analytics & Visualization 2016, running Feb. 9-11 in Palo Alto.
Announced in December 2015, Wade Larson has accepted the role as UrtheCastâ€™s CEO, in addition to his roles as President and COO. Wade developed the original vision for the company, and has over 20 years of space-sector experience.
