An Open Planet

Planet Labs is a new startup with a bold mission: To image the entire planet every day. In the last year alone, the company has built and launched 67 satellites, made possible with an "Agile Aerospace" approach.

The current operational constellation is successfully imaging the earth at a resolution of 3 to 5 meters. The goal is to create a much greater awareness of all that is happening on our planet. Key to this mission is greatly increasing the world's access to satellite imagery and the valuable information that can be derived from it.

LocationTech: Processing Geospatial Data at Scale

LocationTech (https://locationtech.org) is a working group inside of Eclipse Foundation that many open source projects dealing with geospatial data call home.
The projects serve a wide variety of purposes, from a C/C++ library for doing spatial indexing, to a framework for rendering 3D maps on mobile devices,
but they all have a common theme: dealing with location. If you need to handle data that you can put on a map, then LocationTech would be a good place to look for open source solutions.
