Through this new program, leading sustainability-focused companies CARTOClimate EngineGeotabNGIS, and Planet are bringing their core applications—and more than 50 petabytes of satellite imagery, demographics, mobility, and telematics data—to Google Cloud. This will enable customers to not only deploy these new solutions at global scale on the industry’s cleanest cloud, but also help them accelerate their sustainability initiatives with partner data using Google’s BigQuery, machine learning (ML), and Earth Engine products:

  • CARTO’s Spatial Extension for BigQuery enhances BigQuery with spatial data, analysis, and visualization. With CARTO, customers can leverage data from Google Earth Engine, perform Spatial ML with Vertex AI, and overlay all that in rich 2D or 3D using the open-source data visualization library, deck.gl, and Google Maps Platform’s Maps JavaScript API. CARTO’s extensive location data catalog is natively available in BigQuery, so customers can access pre-processed spatial data without needing to extract, transform, or load it, or to perform complex spatial transformations for analysis.

  • Climate Engine delivers actionable earth insights to customers to help them solve some of their biggest climate risks. Climate Engine will bring its datasets on water use, agriculture, storm risk, and wildfire spread to Google Cloud, helping organizations such as financial services institutions, consumer packaged goods companies, manufacturers, and governments better plan for the risks brought on by climate change.

  • Geotab’s fleet telematics application, MyGeotab, helps companies and organizations manage vehicle fleets more efficiently and accelerates their shift to electric vehicles through the use of data. Processing more than 40 billion data points every day from millions of connected vehicles around the world, Geotab’s transportation analytics platform, Altitude, provides access to comprehensive traffic insights to enable governments and businesses alike to make data-driven decisions to help support sustainable community development.

  • NGIS’ platform, TraceMark, maps and monitors sustainability in global supply chains. Through satellite imagery and mapping, TraceMark enables organisations to take a data-driven approach to global supply chain sustainability, delivering transparency and traceability to enable organizations to address their climate commitments.

  • Planet’s daily imaging of planet earth (PlanetScope) as well as its high-resolution, tasked satellite imagery (SkySat) enables fast, global access of this data to businesses and governments. This ever-growing set of satellite images can also be directly integrated into existing and future Google Cloud solutions, crossing multiple industries where the impacts of climate change may be felt, such as supply-chain-reliant organizations, agricultural businesses, and more.

In addition, Planet, Climate Engine, and NGIS will integrate growing datasets on topics like water availability, agriculture, weather risks, daily satellite imagery, and more into Google Earth Engine and Google BigQuery, providing customers with a more comprehensive view of our changing planet and enabling them to ensure their businesses are operating in sustainable ways.

“We are committed to helping customers meet and exceed their sustainability goals with the industry’s cleanest cloud and through solutions that will help customers across industries make more data- and sustainability-driven decisions,” said Kevin Ichhpurani, Corporate Vice President, Global Ecosystem at Google Cloud. “These partnerships will help businesses and governments take action and accelerate their sustainability initiatives. We’re proud to work with these leaders and to support customers on their sustainability journeys.”
