2021-03-08 – Meet Polar View, a company that uses Earth observation data to serve the Canadian Arctic. The Canadian Arctic is home to over 200,000 people. Travelling on sea ice is an essential part of their lives. But due to climate change, Canada’s North is warming up two to three times faster than the rest of the planet. This causes sea ice to melt, making traditional knowledge of the icescape less reliable. Space technologies, namely satellites, can help.
