DO’s vision is to be at the forefront of data-centric innovation, leading the production of solutions that are centered on data, talent and social capital. This translates into the mission of acquiring, processing and storing data sets generated by public or private organizations and which, due to their volume, nature and complexity, require curation, exploration, visualization and analysis capacity that facilitate the availability of said data for the development of science, technology, innovation, knowledge and its applications in the economy. This includes, among others:
- To generate, acquire, store, collect, cure, systematize, analyze, process, explore and make available data of astronomical origin or from another similar source, in areas such as climate change, seismic activity, the availability of water resources and other activities or sources that are relevant to the country and its development.
- To create knowledge, databases, algorithms, technology and solutions related to the aforementioned activities.
- To generate instances of education, talent development, training in algorithms and new technologies, while being able to form alliances or to celebrate agreements for these purposes with other foundations, educational, governmental and non-governmental entities, scientific societies, natural persons, or any other public or private entity, for the development of projects or instances related to astronomy, astroinformatics and data analysis of any nature or industry.
