About Koordinates

We believe Earth is our greatest asset, which is why we are transforming how Earth’s data is published and used.

Governments, private companies and researchers around the world manage vast amounts of valuable data about our planet. But to find this data, professionals have to scour multiple internal and public sources, with no easy way to appraise, crop and export data in the formats they need.

Our cloud-based platform processes large, complex spatial datasets, ensuring that professionals can get the data they need for the projects that shape our planet – all in one place.

Our platform enables organisations to publish their open data, share their private data, and build new products using out-of-the-box APIs.

For publishers and users around the world, the potential is enormous. In fact, we believe that unlocking Earth’s data is the secret to redefining our economic, environmental and social prosperity.
