The world is becoming increasingly connected. There are new challenges that present immediate and long-term risks that require solutions that are as complicated as the problems.

New Light Technologies (NLT) has begun working with the World Bank to help developing countries understand and respond to the most pressing issues facing them today. NLT is helping expand the geospatial capacity of multiple World Bank teams, working both on both the local and national scale, by supplying GIS technical support, advanced methods for remote sensing analysis and implementation of machine learning techniques for land cover and land use classification. Our expert staff are also increasing the mastery of partner institutions abroad through workshops that provide participants with remote sensing skills and analytical tool sets for analysis of satellite data, including image interpretation and image classification, primarily in Google Earth Engine.
