With a mission to accelerate global understanding, EarthX is creating a digital geospatial platform for mainstream general audiences. Using the available software and tools, EarthX partners can transform their data into compelling and memorable 3D map layers and cinematic story content that explore and explain underlying global patterns and trends. Through these data visualizations, EarthX hopes to create change by enabling people to learn about the world and the challenges that define our era.  

"The true value of the platform and what we believe is a common need, is the ability to translate complex data into simple and memorable visualizations. We then use cinematic storytelling techniques to explain the data so that general users can begin to comprehend complex issues." Kyle VanderLugt, COO
 
EarthX has joined the CDAC Network as an affiliate and we are excited by the new angle to communications that the company brings to the Network by producing visualisations of interrelated data sets which put into context why disasters happen. Some of their previous work includes providing NGOs with data to better visualise refugee routes, understand the spread of diseases and track earthquake patterns to inform their work. 

If you are interested in exploring better ways to visualize your data, in creating GeoStories to bring your data to life, or communicate what you want to do in a more memorable way, EarthX would love to work with you through their Partnership Program.

To find out more, please contact Lyndon-Marc Adade or read more about partnering with EarthX.
