Working with environmental, geospatial data can be challenging. The huge amount of data from a many different sources makes it difficult to find the bits that you care about. Analyzing the data is difficult, especially if it’s larger than your machines memory. The Planetary Computer helps address these challenges by hosting and cataloging environmental data in consistent formats, providing APIs for searching the data, and compute to scale your workflows.
Tom Augspurger is a software engineer at Microsoft working on the Planetary Computer. He helps maintain several libraries in the PyData ecosystem, including pandas and Dask.
