SkyWatch is on a mission to make satellite data accessible to the world. Every day, trillions of pixels are captured by satellites orbiting our planet. With new applications for this data being discovered every week, the demand for this imagery is increasing across many industries. However, the current process for purchasing satellite imagery is tedious and time-consuming. They experienced this problem first hand and, after weeks of trying to find the right data, they decided to come up with their own solution.
Utilizing their past experience in building NASA-award winning software (called Supernova), their team is developing EarthCache. SkyWatch believe that providing a singular point to discover and access the world’s remote sensing datasets will bring amazing change to geospatial analytics. SkyWatch wants to make it easy for you to monitor the progress of crops, predict the markets, track ship and airplanes, measure global warming, or create other game-changing applications. Their goal is to be the leading provider of data and intelligence from space.

Severe flooding has occurred in the Volgogradskaya Oblast Region of Russia following vast amounts of snow melting on March 26, 2018. The flooding was caused by melting snow and ice jams in rivers, along with some rain. The situation has been worsened by the fact that the ground is frozen and unable to absorb the melting snow and rain. Approximately 31 inhabited locations have been badly affected, leaving 790 houses inundated and 2,680 yards flooded.
