Launches Galileo, a Geospatial Data Search Engine Launches Galileo, a Geospatial Data Search Engine

Rapid Geospatial Data Discovery

Access over 750,000 Geospatial Datasets

ORALANDO, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, June 7, 2024 / — announces the launch of Galileo, a sophisticated geospatial data search engine designed to simplify data discovery. Galileo addresses the challenge of fragmented data sources, offering professionals a more efficient way to locate and utilize geospatial datasets.

Solving the Data Fragmentation Problem

In the vast landscape of geospatial data, information is often scattered across numerous databases, leading to inefficiencies and delays. Galileo by consolidates these datasets into a single platform, enhancing productivity by streamlining the search process.

The Journey

Parker Dinkins, founder of, identified a significant challenge in the geospatial field: the inefficiency of accessing dispersed data. As a self-taught programmer and co-founder of Precision Ecology, Dinkins experienced the frustration of navigating through multiple databases. His academic background in Environmental Studies, Urban Planning, and GIS at the University of Central Florida further fueled his determination to create a unified platform for geospatial data discovery.

Partnering with Myles Haynes, creator of GeodataDownloader, and Jacob Rosen, a developer with extensive software and full-stack development experience, Dinkins built Galileo into a robust search engine featuring over 2,000 data sources and 750,000 datasets.

Galileo’s Key Features

Efficiency: Reduces the time spent searching for geospatial data.

Integration: Seamlessly incorporates with existing tools.

Advanced Search: Filters for category, layer type, state, county, and city.

Instant Previews: Previews datasets with a single click, displaying detailed metadata.

Single-Tab Interface: Consolidates search activities into one tab, avoiding clutter.

Download Feature: Directly downloads datasets for immediate use.

Impact on Various Sectors

Galileo is designed to benefit professionals, including urban planning, GIS, real estate, agriculture, environmental studies, and more. By providing quick and easy access to a vast array of geospatial data, Galileo helps these professionals invest more time into analysis and visualization.

Supporting Education and Students is committed to supporting the next generation of geospatial professionals. Students and teachers can access Galileo Starter for free. Additionally, plans to publish guides for urban planning and GIS students.

Future Vision

The development roadmap for Galileo includes advanced spatial search capabilities, more sophisticated analysis tools, and an expanded dataset to cover international sources. Future platforms are planned to support custom workflows, analysis, and mapping, creating a comprehensive suite of geospatial tools under
