Taking Action

GeoEye logo

The GeoEye Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization established on the belief that we have a social responsibility to share GeoEye's technology and resources to help train others to map, monitor, and measure the Earth. We focus on three specific areas:

  • Fostering the growth of the next generation of geospatial technology professionals
  • Providing satellite imagery to students and faculty to advance research in geographic information systems and technology as well as environmental studies
  • Assisting non-governmental organizations in humanitarian support missions

Since its creation in 2007, the Foundation has made imagery awards to professors and students for studies in climate change, forestry management, archaeology, land use/land cover, national security and many other research topics. The Foundation has also provided imagery to non-governmental organizations for disaster response and recovery, human rights and health and disease monitoring and other important areas of study.
