Who We Are

Founded in 2020 and based in Washington, DC, Impact Observatory’s mission is to empower global decision-makers to be planetary superheroes, with the timely, actionable, science-based geospatial insights they need to succeed.


Impact Observatory co-founders Steve Brumby and Sam Hyde met at the National Geographic Society where they led the Society to develop open source technology and geospatial science data that Impact Observatory continues to develop and bring to market.
