Radiant launched operations in August 2016 to answer the call for open access to geospatial data, with analytical tools for global development practitioners designed to improve decision-making, and to foster entrepreneurship worldwide.
Radiant’s geospatial technology platform will permit users to illuminate earth, literally, to allow everywhere to be "seen"; to turn the telescopes back on human activity as they enter the Anthropocene period; and to give decision-makers a scientific window into understanding global activity better. Providing the global community with these tools and data can create powerful insights and accelerate greater catalytic, evidence-based support for change.
Radiant offers solutions to fully realizing the potential of earth observation for positive, even life-changing global impact: It simplifies the overall process across the value chain of using geospatial data.
They expose imagery across the globe, date and spectrum; it provides technology and tools to analyze geospatial data, thereby improving the usage of data for greater impact; it works with the community to create new, open standards; and it focuses thought leadership, market analytics and capacity development programs.
