To spur early adoption of Microsoft’s Planetary Computer, The Group on Earth Observations (GEO), in partnership with Microsoft, has announced a request for proposals from scientists looking to use the platform to help reduce and reverse tropical forest loss.
The Microsoft Planetary Computer is a multi-petabyte catalogue of global environmental data with APIs and applications. Grantees will be able to utilise open data and analytical tools, including being among the first to access the NICFI Satellite Data Program on Azure.
