John Amos Joins The Commons' Board of Directors

We are elated to announce that John Amos, Founder and Executive Director of SkyTruth will be joining our board of directors. John is an expert in the use of satellite images and other remote sensing data to understand and communicate local, regional and global environmental issues. Educated as a geologist he spent 10 years applying image processing, image analysis, and digital mapping techniques to conduct environmental, exploration and resource assessment studies for the energy and mining industries and government entities.

In 2001 John founded SkyTruth, a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to strengthening environmental conservation by illuminating environmental problems and issues through the use of satellite images, aerial photographs, and other kinds of remote sensing and digital mapping. Under John’s leadership, we look forward to exploring new ways our organization can partner to unlock deep information contained in satellite imagery.

Welcome John! We are excited to have you on board.
