Protecting land rights of indigenous peoples with ACT
In Colombia, surveys provided to the National Lands Agency serve as the basis to strengthen indigenous land rights through the creation and expansion of indigenous reserves. Here's how our partners at the Amazon Conservation Team (ACT) are using satellite imagery to assist in the 2020 census of indigenous communities.
Improving Earth from space: environmental success stories
In celebrating 50 years of Earth Day, we'd like to share some inspiring stories that highlight how our partners are using Maxar technology to develop new solutions to monitor and combat climate change—from renewable energy infrastructure to food security and more.
Bringing conservation to scale
See how the Jane Goodall Institute is using satellite imagery to collaborate with local communities on sustainable livelihoods, land-use planning and natural resource management to restore and protect chimpanzee habitats, improving well-being for all.
Reaching net-zero emissions goals with Pachama

Our partner, Pachama, is helping landowners and forest carbon project developers achieve sustainability goals by calculating stored carbon at scale using AI and satellite imagery.
Tracking atmospheric pollution by the hour
TEMPO stands for Tropospheric Emissions: Monitoring of Pollution. A collaborative mission between NASA and the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory set for launch in 2022, TEMPO will monitor and track air pollution across North America on an hourly basis. Here's how:
