GeoEye Foundation | Educate Innovate Inspire

The GeoEye Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization established on the belief that we have a unique opportunity to share GeoEye's technology and resources to help train others to map, monitor, and measure the Earth. We focus on three specific areas:

  • Fostering the growth of the next generation of geospatial technology professionals
  • Providing satellite imagery to students and faculty to advance research in geographic information systems and technology as well as environmental studies
  • Assisting non-governmental organizations in humanitarian support missions

Since its creation in 2007, the Foundation has made imagery awards to professors and students for studies in climate change, forestry management, archaeology, land use/land cover, national security and many other research topics. The Foundation has also provided imagery to non-governmental organizations for disaster response and recovery, human rights and health and disease monitoring and other important areas of study.


The GeoEye Foundation is a not-for-profit philanthropic organization headquartered in Herndon, Virginia, focused on fostering the growth of the next generation of geospatial technology professionals. The Foundation provides satellite imagery to students, educational institutions and non-governmental organizations to advance research in numerous fields including human rights, defense and intelligence, public safety, healthcare, critical infrastructure, energy, environmental change and archeology. The Foundation believes that through observation comes awareness, and from awareness comes action.


The Vision of the GeoEye Foundation is to foster the growth of the next generation of users who apply geospatial smart technology in diverse and innovative ways to meet local, national and global challenges, and help improve the lives of individuals around the world.
