Using every LANDSAT satellite image, all manner of trade flows around the world, demographic and pandemic data, and some four hundred other layers of information, the system can be used to illustrate precisely how the world around us is changing every day.

These tools make it possible to make sense of massive data available at the speed of light to help increase our ability to better understand how and why the Earth is changing, build consensus and, hopefully, chart a smart future together.
