Vancouver, BC, CAN | San Francisco, CA

With the many challenges facing our planet — societal, economic, environmental, and more — I was extremely proud to lead a team to design, architect, build, and release the UrtheCast Developer Platform to the market, which became publicly available and offered tools to help people solve global problems. I firmly believed that the key to the product offering would be a clean, human-centered design that elicited ease of use and the beautiful imagery would come through, so that the harder stuff like remote sensing models, computer vision, machine learning, and artificial intelligence became attainable.

Tools for understanding global change

What this beta platform did was open up access to a deep trove of Earth Observation data, at an unprecedented scale. Built by developers for developers, the UrtheCast platform made it easy for devs to build tools to monitor deforestation, refugee crises, environmental change, impacts of natural disasters, urban growth, natural resources, commodities trading, and much more.
