This open access book offers a summary of the development of Digital Earth over the past twenty years. By reviewing the initial vision of Digital Earth, the evolution of that vision, the relevant key technologies, and the role of Digital Earth in helping people respond to global challenges, this publication reveals how and why Digital Earth is becoming vital for acquiring, processing, analysing and mining the rapidly growing volume of global data sets about the Earth.
it is now possible to understand population food secuirty issues at the neighborhood level, even in places where data has been traditionally hard to access.
The remote sensing satellite is to be used collect data for agricultural, climate, mining and environmental observations but could also be used for citizen surveillance.
Radiant MLHub will accelerate the adoption of machine learning to help solve global development challenges, including food insecurity.

As Lead of the NASA Harvest Eastern Africa-Hub program and part of the NASA Harvest and SERVIR Global Applied Science Team, she conducts remote sensing training in the use of EO tools to assess and forecast crop conditions. Her EO capacity building portfolio includes the government ministries in Kenya, Rwanda, Tanzania, Uganda, and Mali, as well as regional agencies such as the Regional Centre For Mapping Resource For Development (RCMRD) and IGAD Climate Prediction and Applications Center.
“In a new report, @richardjpope provides practical guidance for developing cross-government platforms, a way to break down organizational silos, save money, and change the types of services that can be delivered to the public
This Special Issue is consequently aiming to cover the most recent advances in Earth Observation Data Cube developments and implementations
Budget increases pave the way for next generation of Earth-observing Sentinel satellites
Throughout GEO Week 2019, dedicated events focused on inclusive dialogue with Indigenous communities to discuss how Earth observations can better support communities to respond to challenges they are facing.
