The GlobalXplorer° platform is an online platform that uses the power of the crowd to analyze the incredible wealth of satellite images currently available to archaeologists. We seek to revolutionize how modern archaeology is done altogether, by creating a global network of citizen explorers, opening field schools to guide archaeological preservation on the ground, developing an archaeological institute, and even launching a satellite designed with archaeology in mind.
