Governments and private and nonprofit sectors use data from Earth-observing satellites to manage natural resources, achieve business and policy goals, and serve the public interest. What can we learn from this data, and how can it be used to inform decisions that benefit people and the environment? Resources for the Future (RFF) and the VALUABLES Consortium, a collaboration between RFF and NASA, hosted “Taking the Pulse of a Changing Planet" on October 30, 2019. The event, part of our RFF Live series, featured a panel of experts discussing past, present, and future opportunities in applications of satellite data.
