The EODH is funded by the Natural Environment Research Council as part of the Earth Observation Investment Package of the Department for Science, Innovation and Technology.

“Following on from Earth-i’s success of working with Planet Labs team on other government contracts such as the RPA in 2023, it is great to be working with the EODH project team to unlock the immense power of Earth Observation data across UK Government to ensure that UK science is at the forefront of global EO discovery and policy, and supporting and growing the UK downstream geospatial data analytics industry to become a global leader”, commented Charles Davis, CEO at Earth-i.
