A core goal of Radiant Earth Foundation is to raise awareness around innovation in geospatial analytics with a particular focus on ML and EO for the global development community. In this spirit, we present Illuminate, a collection of specially-selected courses and other educational resources.

These Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) on ML, data science, remote sensing, and GIS, serve as a gateway to knowledge and professional development to individuals interested in employing geospatial technologies and ML for global development applications. The collection for each subject area is available according to one’s skill level: beginner, intermediate, and advanced. These educational resources are well suited for entrepreneurs and technologists who view innovative technologies as a vehicle to raise the quality of life.

The advancements in new technology not only creates demand for high-skilled education, but it has also changed how training can be delivered. Now, everyone, especially people in emerging economies, can have access to top tier technical education for little to no cost. While there is no standard path to development, education is the stepping stone to find solutions to the persistent problems plaguing the world.

Enjoy learning and innovating!
