EDUCATION

Earth observation is valuable and underutilized in the classroom, especially for young students. Earthrise works with partners like National Geographic and The Tech Museum of Innovation to curate content that delivers on classroom science standards.

JOURNALISM

Given the pressing pace of article deadlines, competition for reader attention and the overwhelming source of visual data, we make it easy to find the right images in the right format for award winning reporting.

CIVIC ACTION

That first Earthrise image from 1968 began the modern environmental movement. We are harnassing the revolution in computing capability and the success of satellite technology to empower civic action at local level.
