Announcing Earth Index

Earth Index is Earth monitoring for everyone. Harnessing satellite imagery and AI, obtain insights in a day instead of months. Earth Index is built by Earth Genome and is now available for priority use cases in alpha release.

Earth Index is already making a difference

Earth Index is being used today to expose illegal gold mining in the Yanomami Indigenous Territory, track cattle factory farms across the planet for emissions modeling, and plan field fact finding trips exposing how communities are threatened by commodity markets.

Monitor illegal mining operations - Amazon Mining Watch

Earth Index is the core technology powering Amazon Mining Watch, a platform for monitoring illegal, environmentally-destructive gold mining in the world’s largest rainforest. Earth Index uses machine learning to recognize characteristic landscape change over time and flag new mining activity as it begins.

Find anything

Ordering satellite imagery and searching open source catalogs is tedious. Scanning low-resolution thumbnails for required features is time-consuming. Earth Index streamlines the process, making image catalog searches more efficient. Find anything, anywhere, in less than a day.

Key features

Earth Index uses large geospatial AI foundation models to find places to simplify and accelerate environmental monitoring, so that anyone can create actionable data from satellite imagery. Using image embeddings, a "DNA sequence" which uniquely identifies features in a stack of imagery, the technology allows for efficient searching and classification workflows.

Leverage the power of multispectral data

From crop mapping to carbon biomass estimation, Earth Index can draw on descriptive multispectral data to find what you’re looking for.

Search over time

The world is dynamic. Earth Index is designed with this principal at its core, and easily allows for a user to monitor locations that have changed over time in similar ways.

Insightful and delightful user experience

It all comes together in an intuitive user experience designed closely with the people who need this tool the most.

Embeddings designed for efficient, structural searches

Built using the latest geospatial machine learning and compuer vision models, Earth Index recognizes spatial patterns in imagery, and intelligently compresses images for rapid searching, classification, and retrieval.

Why we built it

At the time of the most intense planetary crisis, we see the greatest developments in data technology. This is not a coincidence but an opportunity that cannot be missed.

Our projects over the years have required finding things that have never been accounted for or things that change over time – discovering new mines in the Amazon, creating an inventory of all high concentration cattle operations in the United States, finding undocumented waste sites in Indonesia or distinguishing wheat fields from other types of agriculture in Ukraine. We purpose built tools to search within an ocean of pixels – across space and time. Now, Earth Index allows us – or anyone – to build these kinds of datasets in a way that is better, faster, and cheaper than ever before.
