UP42, a geospatial developer platform and marketplace, and GLOBHE, the world’s premier on-demand drone data marketplace, announced their partnership to make high-quality drone data available through UP42.

The agreement expands UP42’s current offer of satellite, aerial, elevation, weather, AIS and RF data.

Based in Stockholm, Sweden, GLOBHE relies on 9500+ local professional drone operators in 142 countries and is the sole drone marketplace platform to support automated data collection at a global scale for sustainable infrastructure, environmental and humanitarian purposes.

“The addition of GLOBHE’s drone data to our marketplace underscores our commitment to being a one-stop-shop for all geospatial needs but we carefully select partners who share our same vision to deliver on this mission,” said Sean Wiid, CEO of UP42.”

UP42’s customers will be able to access the following services through the marketplace:

  • Archive: Access to GLOBHE’s vast library of drone data from over 100 countries.
  • Tasking: Request(s) on one or multiple locations will be matched against professional drone operator(s) authorized and licensed to collect the data.

By making all of GLOBHE’s data available in UP42's STAC-compatible (SpatioTemporal Asset Catalog) data management solution, customers will benefit from a simplified data search and management for easier processing and integration.

In tasking drones via UP42, customers will also appreciate the platform’s advanced capabilities, such as order tracking, automated delivery, wide range of sensor types, and support for complex and multi-geometry AOIs.
