Empowering global decision-makers to be planetary superheroes

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.

Impact Observatory is a Small Business Partner Member of the USGIF and a Member of the Open Geospatial Consortium.
