Its great to hear of joy in work.  It was interesting to read "The company
announced in January that it would give researchers free access to its
30-metre-resolution hyperspectral data. These span optical and
near-infrared wavelengths and can help track water pollution and oil
spills, and monitor the health of forests and crops."

Is your geometric software useful dataset users?  Or is it just for
preprocessing to prepare saleable data?
Is its available to end-users?  Or is it secret sauce?
