In this panel we will debate the availability, accuracy and processing technologies of space big data
How the concept of sharing economy will develop in the geo-business by mobilizing underused assets — satellite constellations, UAVs, and other aerial imaging platforms — and essentially creating a new revenue channel for data owners.
We will also look into the Copernicus programme and how this will be a game changer to the current ecosystem.
Copernicus consists of a complex set of systems which collect data from multiple sources: earth observation satellites andin situ sensors such as ground stations, airborne and sea-borne sensors. It processes these data and provides users with reliable and up-to-date information through a set of services related to environmental and security issues.
Theaddress six thematic areas: land, marine, atmosphere, climate change, emergency management and security. They support a wide range of applications, including environment protection, management of urban areas, regional and local planning, agriculture, forestry, fisheries, health, transport, climate change, sustainable development, civil protection and tourism.
