“Xplore is excited to collaborate with UP42 to deliver our high-quality data products to their customers, adding value and empowering customers to derive a host of valuable insights. As a leading developer platform and marketplace for Earth insights, UP42 is a key partner for us to serve their growing base of customers. As customers use the data, more and more applications will surface, and we expect our contributions will help make the market more robust and set both companies on an accelerated growth path.” said Lisa Rich, Xplore Co-Founder and COO.

“Partnering with Xplore is an opportunity to diversify our portfolio with multisensor spacecrafts and unique UV sensors that offer customers more capabilities in a wider range of industries,” said Kevin Boverie, Head of Partnerships and Resellers at UP42. “This also helps us stay true to our goal to support early-stage organizations to build and scale their solutions faster and make informed decisions about their business.”

Data generated with Xplore’s diverse sensors will address a wide variety of use cases across the burgeoning Earth observation industry including agriculture, forestry, oil and gas, maritime, change detection and intelligence, and creative media content. Additionally, customers can obtain more informative, rich layers of data from Xplore’s data fusion product.
