Climate Engine helps Google accelerate and scale the implementation Earth Engine for public and private sector organizations to help them better manage assets, monitor resources, mitigate change and build a more sustainable future.
Human and environmental systems are threatened by unprecedented rates of change.
How we act to adapt and mitigate change is one of the biggest challenges facing the planet.
Fortunately, we have unprecedented access to raw data through Earth observation (EO) platforms about the planet and its systems. This data can help us understand how earth systems are changing in order to more sustainably manage our natural resources, grow our food, conserve water, protect our infrastructure, and reduce our carbon footprint.
To help deliver on the promise of EO data to usher in a new wave of sustainability and climate resilience, Climate Engine was founded in 2014 with support from Google Earth Engine.
Our mission is to bring the best available Earth observation (EO) science into operational systems
to support evidence-based decision making across the public and private sectors.
Climate Engine has brought together experts in science, technology, and business to help bring Earth data into decision making.
Petabytes of data about the Earth are being generated every day. And this is only going to increase.
The main challenge with integrating Earth observations into operations is not the lack of data. The real challenge is making sense of the massive amounts of data being produced to find the signal in the noise.
Climate Engine is driven by the urgent need to generate actionable insights from Earth observation data and bringing these insights into decision making tools. This requires science expertise to build and apply appropriate scientific models, technology expertise to compute, store, and deliver big data into operations, and business expertise to ensure outputs are meeting business needs. Our team is built around these three core competencies.
