SAN DIEGO, July 11, 2022 - SkyWatch Space Applications Inc. ("SkyWatch"), a Kitchener-based space technology company, announces today its Esri Partner Network relationship to deliver satellite imagery for mapping projects and spatial analytics via Esri's ArcGIS software.
The integration of SkyWatch's Earth observation (EO) platform, EarthCache, with ArcGIS provides a single aggregate source of EO data from multiple providers. SkyWatch's transparent pay-as-you-go pricing model provides ArcGIS users with the ability to access high-quality satellite imagery within ArcGIS, without the requirement to maintain commercial relationships with each data provider. Additionally, users are able to discover and acquire data for small areas of interest, which has traditionally been challenging due to minimum area requirements and other limiting factors.
EarthCache is the simplest way to integrate commercial satellite imagery into any application, removing the complexity out of Earth observation data sourcing and processing. EarthCache is a single access point to the best Earth observation data available for application developers and geospatial experts across all industries.
"Esri is the global leader in geographic information systems (GIS) technology and location intelligence and we're thrilled to partner with Esri to deliver Earth observation data to ArcGIS customers," says David Proulx, Chief Product Officer at SkyWatch. "We're looking forward to unlocking simple access to EO data for the geospatial community through the integration of EarthCache and ArcGIS."

SkyWatch is on a mission to democratize remote-sensing data through a simple user experience. Drawing on the team's past experience in space data aggregation software, SkyWatch is building the infrastructure to connect satellite data providers and geospatial data consumers.
