The company that models the world
Established in 2014 by a team of scientists from Los Alamos National Laboratory, Descartes Labs was founded on the belief that planetary knowledge has the power to radically alter how companies, governments, nonprofits, and other stakeholder groups across the globe carry out their charters.
Scientific integrity, excellence, innovation, a commitment to sustainability, protection of the environment, and the practice of impact science define the core values of our company.
Our scientist-founders possess decades of experience working on some of our nation’s most difficult problems, with expertise in large-scale computing, artificial intelligence, and satellite imagery. Our team has created a technology stack that makes science faster, providing limitless computing power and seamless access to petabytes of scientifically calibrated data.
Descartes Labs is the first company founded to create a geospatial data refinery to fuel predictive models. We combine the most scalable geospatial data processing and modeling platform with a massive, diverse geospatial library. Our talented team of scientists are recognized leaders in the field, helping enterprise customers create competitive advantage through scientifically validated analytics.
We serve hundreds of global companies, governments, and impact organizations around the world—across industries that include agriculture, mining and metals, oil and gas, shipping and logistics, power and renewables, insurance, and more.
Descartes Labs is based in Santa Fe, New Mexico with offices in San Francisco, New York, DC, Minneapolis, and Denver. We have raised $58 million from investors that include March Capital Partners, Cultivian Sandbox Ventures, and Crosslink Capital.
