How it works

We use satellite imagery, machine learning, luminosity, and other inputs to calculate subnational GDP.

Our department is ranked #1 in Economic Geography worldwide, and our methods build off an approach from the American Economic Review, the world’s top Economics journal. We were funded by the European Space Agency BIC UK.

We’re a team of Fellows, PhDs, and postdocs from the LSE whose research specializes in this field, and we’re bringing our findings into industry.

In benchmarking tests in the EU, our methods average ~98% accuracy.

We use NASA satellite imagery, luminosity,  machine learning, and other inputs to estimate GDP.

We specialise in spatial economics data

We are Fellows/ PhDs/ Postdocs from the London School of Economics, initially funded by the European Space Agency BIC UK. We have published in peer-reviewed journals, are Forbes 30 under 30 entrepreneurs, and designed policies for national governments.  We are complemented by ex-SoftBank and ex-McKinsey advisors.
