Business description: Orbital Insight is a Geospatial Big Data company leveraging the rapidly growing availability of satellite, UAV, and other geospatial data sources. The company’s goal is to understand and characterize socio­economic trends at global, regional, and hyper­local scales. The technology behind the tiny computing components needed for smartphones also makes it possible to build smaller satellites that are also faster and easier to launch. But when these satellites first sent millions of detailed images from space, nobody had the software to make sense of them. Orbital Insight was born out of this need. Now, satellite images are more than just beautiful pictures, they are a source of cutting-edge insights about our changing world. Will the rest be history?
