We’re scientists and entrepreneurs - solving challenging problems is our life’s work. We founded OmniEarth because we could not get the type of comprehensive Earth information we were looking for from existing sources. Our desire to investigate unanswered questions about our changing Earth led us to create a company that produces a reliable, constant data stream and enhanced decision making tools for subscribers in the agriculture, forestry, energy, civil and military markets … and everyone else who needs a more comprehensive understanding of Earth.
