A joint project of the World Resources Institute and Google, among others, to use satellite imagery and large-scale computing to report open and timely information on the world's forests.


A two-day hackathon with an environmental character.  This was the third year.  Global.  Well, like four cities.  


Statistics for social scientists.  An attempt to parse causality in a world where everything moves together.  Now called data science.

Computer vision for satellite imagery.  Bascially enhancing remote sensing with face detection, mostly in Clojure, Python, and R.  APIs for imagery.
