Solutions for global development

Geospatial data and tools for all 17 Sustainable Development Goals

Breaking down siloes to address complex issues

Challenges like monitoring poverty, hunger and health; observing trends in education and gender equality; better understanding the effects of climate change; and protecting human rights are all critical to a sustainable future.

Foundational geospatial data can help foster consistency across programs and provide critical context at local and national scale.

Critical insights into natural and built environments

Understanding how environmental and human dynamics influence economic conditions and conflict is difficult. But geospatial data can help map populations, homes, schools, vegetation, infrastructure, energy and more. Continuous data streams enable change detection to unlock insights and inform action.

Maxar high-resolution satellite imagery provides rich detail that enable analyses for critical context on changing ground conditions.

Working together for a better world

Maxar is committed to making advanced geospatial technology more accessible for global development programs and proudly partners with organizations working across all 17 of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. These partnerships ensure our data are put to good use on the ground.
